Q:
Can you tell me some info about lawsuits relating to hernia mesh?

A:
Many patients have concerns and ask questions about hernia mesh.

In the past, some mesh used for non-hernia related surgeries had metal pieces inside of them. These pieces of metal over time eroded out of the mesh and into the intestines. 99.9% of lawsuits today is due to this specific type of metal reinforced meshes and NOT the mesh used for hernia repairs.

Today, these types of hard plastic meshes, and metal containing meshes are not used by most busy hernia surgeons.

To learn more you should go to a medical professional.
