Montgomery Ponder attorneys are now accepting clients who have been injured by hernia mesh implants. If you or a loved one has had complications related to a hernia repair, contact Montgomery & Ponder, LLC at (205) 377-5004.
Our attorneys are investigating hernia mesh injuries for clients across the country. The manufacturers of hernia mesh include Ethicon – Johnson & Johnson, Covidien – Medtronic, Atrium – C-Qur, and Davol – C.R. Bard. We will discuss Ethicon – Physiomesh implants today and the other manufacturers in future blog posts.
Ethicon - Physiomesh™
In May 2016, Ethicon, a division of Johnson & Johnson, recalled its Physiomesh™ Flexible Composite Mesh from the market. Studies have shown higher rates of hernias reoccurring and the need for additional surgery to remove the defective mesh and revise the initial surgery. The product is intended to repair hernias, but many people have experienced major health problems.
Complications from Hernia Mesh Surgery
Some of the injuries sustained by patients with hernia mesh implants are:
- Bowel obstructions
- Seromas (fluid buildup under the skin)
- Mesh failures, including mesh migration or hernia recurrence
- Need for removal surgery/surgeries
If you or a loved one have suffered an injury following a hernia mesh surgery, please contact Montgomery & Ponder, LLC at (205) 377-5004.
