Hernia repair is a very common surgery in the US. In fact, around 10 million hernia repairs have been performed in operating rooms across the country over the past decade. About 500,000 ventral (or abdominal) hernia repairs and 500,000 inguinal (or groin repairs), are conducted each year. Oftentimes these hernias are repaired using a product called surgical mesh, which prevents the organ from pushing through the weakened tissue that helps hold the organ in place. While hernia mesh is generally successful in preventing recurrent hernias, some complications have been attributed to multiple types of mesh devices, including (but not limited to) Physiomesh, C-QUR, and numerous Bard, Ethicon, Gore, and Covidien Products. As a result, there is the potential for a hernia mesh lawsuit.

The Ruth Law Team is currently investigating Bard, Atrium, Ethicon, Covidien and Gore hernia mesh products. The following symptoms are common in patients with failed mesh devices:
