Ethicon Physiomesh FAQ
How Do I Know if the Hernia Mesh I Received Is Physiomesh?
You may be concerned to hear about the recall, lawsuits, and injuries associated with the Physiomesh Flexible Composite implant manufactured by Ethicon, especially if you have undergone laparoscopic hernia repair surgery in the past several years. You may also be unsure whether you received Physiomesh or another sort of mesh. The best way to find out is to consult with your doctor or contact Wilson Law, P.A. Our law firm can quickly request the medical records and documentation identifying what type of product was used during your hernia repair surgery.
Is Physiomesh Different from Other Hernia Repair Mesh Implants?
As advertised by the manufacturer, Physiomesh is different from many hernia repair mesh implants and the rate of injury and complications is unusually high compared to other products like it. Many recipients have required additional corrective surgery to remove the dangerous implant and treat complications caused by crumpling, folding, and adhesion of the mesh to internal organs.
What if I Have Received a Physiomesh Implant but Haven’t Experienced any Issues?
You may not yet be experiencing issues relating to your implant, but you should educate yourself about the potential complications arising from hernia repair surgery with Physiomesh. These complications include but are not limited to: mesh folding, bunching, or adhering to one of your organs. Symptoms of these serious complications include: inflammation or lump in area of original hernia; chronic pain; flu-like symptoms; bloating; or, inability to pass stool. You should contact your doctor if you have any of these symptoms.
What Are My Legal Options if I Experience Complications Resulting from Physiomesh?
Our firm is prepared to meet with you to discuss your options. Depending on your circumstances, you may be able to take legal action against the manufacturer, in which case we are prepared help you handle your Ethicon Physiomesh claim and work with you to obtain the compensation you deserve for injuries arising from Physiomesh.
