You Need a Passionate, Steadfast Transvaginal Mesh Lawyer in Columbus
The transvaginal mesh is typically used to treat women for stress urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse. The transvaginal mesh, or surgical mesh, which is designed to protect the area, is placed along the vaginal wall during surgery.
Thousands of women have used the transvaginal mesh device, which has come under scrutiny by the Food and Drug Administration. The FDA is investigating reports of several complications involving implantation of the devices.
The Food and Drug Administration has stopped short of issuing a transvaginal mesh recall. Don't wait for your problems to get worse. If you're living with the effects of a defective transvaginal mesh, contact an experienced transvaginal mesh attorney in Ohio. Choose the Smith Law Office. Attorney Smith has thirty years of experience helping injured people obtain the compensation and closure they need after suffering from serious injuries.
Recommendations for Women with POP or SUI
The FDA recommends that women suffering from pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence speak with a doctor about all treatment options, including those that do not involve the surgical mesh, to understand why the surgeon is recommending the transvaginal mesh. Women who have a surgical mesh should continue with routine check-ups and follow-up care after surgery. And women who had surgery for POP and do not know if they have a surgical mesh should find out from their doctor whether they have the mesh.
The following are names of companies that make the transvaginal mesh as well as some common brand names of the product:
- American Medical Systems
- Boston Scientific
- Johnson & Johnson
- Bard Avaulta Biosynthetic
