Pursuing Justice For Those Harmed By Defective Surgical Mesh Products

The widespread use of surgical mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse, incontinence and hernias has unfortunately caused serious and permanent complications for many patients. Thousands of women and men have endured further surgeries to remove mesh or mitigate the problems it caused.

If you have experienced symptoms relating to transvaginal mesh or other surgical mesh, the Law Office of John W. Redmann, L.L.C., can explain your legal rights and remedies. We pursue damages from the manufacturers of defective mesh products and the surgeons who implanted them.

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 caused by 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. Negative effects may include:

  • 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
  • Dangerous infections

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 in treating prolapse.
