About mesh injury claims

Surgical mesh implants have been widely used to treat incontinence and prolapse but reports of health complications have now brought the safety of rectal and vaginal mesh surgery into question.

The complications commonly associated with surgical mesh implants include chronic pain, difficulty walking, bleeding, bladder or bowel trauma, incontinence, haemotoma, and mesh erosion or protrusion.

Our experienced and compassionate medical negligence team can support with all types of mesh claims including:

  • TVT surgery
  • Rectopexy
  • Starr procedures
  • TOT surgery
  • SS tape

If you have had rectal or vaginal mesh surgery and have experienced side effects or complications and would like to speak to one of our specialist solicitors for further advice, please contact either Oonagh McClure or Joanne Kerr on 02890 890450 for a free, no-obligation consultation or to start your mesh claim.
