Have you been injured by pelvic mesh?
Although pelvic mesh implantation is less invasive than some treatments for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse, the complication rate is much higher, often requiring revision surgery. After reviewing post-market studies and patient data, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) stated that serious complications related to pelvic mesh were not rare and the device is no more effective at treating prolapse than non-mesh treatments.
