New Orleans Surgical Mesh Attorneys
Metairie Lawyers For Surgical Mesh Lawsuits
Product Liability Representation In Louisiana And Beyond
Personal injury lawyer John W. Redmann has represented clients in Greater New Orleans and throughout Louisiana for more than 20 years. In recent years, his legal team has brought successful claims for product liability and medical malpractice for the harm from surgical mesh products.
Surgical mesh and transvaginal mesh are commonly used to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI) in women. Surgical mesh “patches” have also been widely used to repair hernias in men and women.
While meshes are supposed to be a permanent solution, a high percentage of women have experienced serious adverse outcomes within months or a few short years:
Erosion of the mesh and recurrence of prolapse or incontinence
Chronic pelvic or groin pain
Pain during sex or inability to engage in intercourse
Scarring or narrowing of the vaginal walls
The Food and Drug Administration issued an advisory to physicians and patients in 2011 after investigating complaints about surgical meshes. The FDA concluded that transvaginal mesh introduces more risks than traditional repairs without significant benefits and is not particularly effective at treating prolapse.
