How we can help

surgical mesh frequently asked questions

Synthetic polypropylene and biological mesh is most commonly used as part of the surgical process to treat women who suffer from pelvic organ prolapse, following childbirth or a hysterectomy procedure.    Surgical mesh can be made from the following materials: 
  • absorbable or non-absorbable synthetic polymers 
  • biologic acellular collagen 
  • a combination of the above 
It can be used to treat pelvic organ prolapses, vaginal problems, hernias and rectal prolapse. It should be noted that surgical mesh is also used to treat urinary stress incontinence. 
Yes, unfortunately this can happen. With the right medical care, the chance of infection following a procedure should be low. However, infections can still occur. The main symptom of infection is increased pain and fever, so if you have mesh surgery and experience these, it’s important to seek medical help as soon as possible. 
It’s always best to speak with a legal professional in this instance. If you’re recovering from mesh surgery and you’re facing new health complications as a result, you may be eligible to bring a surgical mesh compensation claim. 
You have three years from the date of the negligence to file a mesh implant lawsuit or within three years of the date you had knowledge that the injury/complication you have suffered was as a result of the mesh implant. If you’re unsure about this, we advise you to start your claim as soon as you can.
