Our Defective Medical Device Lawyers Serve Clients Nationwide
Anyone can develop a hernia. They’re caused by weakened muscles and increased pressure on the stomach or intestines. For some people, surgery can help relieve the pain caused by hernias. During a hernia operation, doctors often use a hernia mesh to reinforce the weakened area.
One type of hernia mesh, the Ethicon Physiomesh Flexible Composite, has been recalled for causing infections and surgeries.

Hernia Mesh Recalled Due to Failure
Information from two large hernia registries showed that patients implanted with Ethicon’s Physiomesh had higher than normal rates of hernia recurrence and reoperations. In other words, the Ethicon mesh failed more often than other hernia mesh products. As a result, in May 2016, Ethicon recalled the Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh from global markets.
Complaints of serious injuries have mounted since this dangerous hernia mesh was put on market in 2010. Physiomesh was approved under a special clearance, so it didn’t go through any testing before being used in patients.
