Hernias present a major health problem for adults. More than one million hernia repair procedures are performed each year in the United States. Often, surgeons will use hernia mesh products to repair hernias. Hernia mesh is a material that is used to attempt to provide support in the area where a hernia is present. However, it has been discovered that many of these products are causing complications for patients including adhesions, infections, sepsis, fistula, perforations, recurrent hernia, obstruction, and rejection of the mesh implant.
The Judson Graham Firm is currently investigating several specific products, many of which have active lawsuits pending in the United States.

What is a Hernia?
A hernia is bulging of an organ, intestine, or fatty tissue through an opening or weak site in the encompassing muscle or connective tissue. One indication of hernia is an external protrusion that is observed particularly when straining or bending down. In most cases, hernias are observed near the abdominal wall, but can also be found near the groin and belly button region.
Types of Hernias:
Based on anatomy, there are five types of hernias which occur commonly:
Inguinal (Groin) Hernia: in the inner groin
Femoral Hernia: in the upper thigh/outer groin
Ventral (Abdominal) Hernia: in the general abdominal/ventral wall
Umbilical Hernia: at the belly button
Hiatal Hernia: inside the abdomen, along the upper stomach/diaphragm
Incisional hernia is a subtype of ventral hernia that is caused by a surgical wound that hasn’t completely healed.
