What is Hernia Mesh?
Hernia mesh is quite simply a medical device designed to be used to repair a hernia. In the 2000s over 90% of groin-area hernias were surgically repaired using hernia mesh. The mesh acts as a barrier to hold an organ or tissue in place.

The most common symptom of defective hernia mesh is pain. Other symptoms and complications include but may not be limited to the following:
- Allergic reaction
- Hernia recurrence
- Intestinal blockage
- Perforation of neighboring tissue or organs
