Do you know why you should be concerned about hernia mesh? We asked Hawaii attorney Wayne Parsons for this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Wayne Parsons:

Recently, they came up with additional designs for the actual mesh. It's made out of a polypropylene material, and that the many manufacturers manufacture this product, this type of product, but that some of those polypropylene materials, some of those meshes turned out to have adverse side effects. They would be incorporated into your body, they would fold and get encapsulate portions of your internal organs, and that was because of the way those products were designed, it was because of the materials they use, and now there 800,000 hernia mesh repairs every year, but there's 800,000 people going in who need to have either that mesh removed and replaced or repaired in some way.
