Mesh has been used for many decades to treat hernias. This allows doctors to quickly repair hernias. Patients can leave the hospital the same day of the procedure.

However, the problems with surgically implanted hernia mesh can begin weeks or years after the surgery. This is often a decaying piece of synthetic material that is no longer effective as time passes. In a worst-case scenario, it can harm the rest of your body.

Thousands of patients have filed lawsuits for defective hernia mesh devices. The time when you file your mesh lawsuit is critically important to your case.
