A big company might cut corners... and if it does, you can get hurt.
If a dangerous product has harmed you or a loved one, the Rottenstein Law Group can help.

For decades, doctors have been using so-called "vaginal mesh" to support or hold in women's pelvic organs to treat pelvic organ prolapse (a condition in which a woman's pelvic organs fall into or through her vaginal opening) and stress urinary incontinence (a condition marked by the involuntary leakage of urine).

Physicians first started using general-purpose "surgical mesh" in the 1950s to treat abdominal hernias. In the 1970s, by cutting that same type of mesh into a different shape, doctors began using it to treat female POP and SUI. As the use of mesh in POP and SUI surgeries increased in popularity in the late 1990s, medical device companies began to develop and market mesh products in configurations designed specifically to treat those two conditions.

In women, the front wall of the vagina supports the bladder. This wall can weaken or loosen with age. Significant bodily stress, such as childbirth, can also damage this part of the vaginal wall. If it deteriorates enough, a woman can suffer bladder prolapse, meaning the bladder is no longer supported and descends into the vagina. This may trigger problems such as urinary difficulties, discomfort, and stress incontinence (urine leakage caused by sneezing, coughing, exertion, etc.).
In operations called "sling procedures," doctors will use surgical mesh to create a sling-like structure of support for a patient's urethra, bladder, or other organ.
Unfortunately, complications with the mesh products are causing women to bleed, swell up, develop infections, and experience debilitating pain.
