We’re urging anyone who has suffered with mesh removal complications to never suffer in silence. There are options for advice and compensation.

Victims who suffer from permanent mesh implant complications can be entitled to substantial levels of compensation where the damage is irreversible.
It’s important to seek legal advice from us if you’re suffering with mesh implant problems. With complications often being lifelong and severe, you should never suffer in silence.
Thousands of women for more than a decade have been reporting mesh implant problems. The issues and complications that can arise can be incredibly painful and debilitating, and any woman suffering problems can contact us for help.
We can represent you for a compensation claim to recover damages for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused.
You can contact our specialist team to start your vaginal mesh lawsuit today. We’ve been advising people for years about the mesh issues, and if you’ve yet to seek legal help, please get in touch.
The recent widespread NHS pause on the use of mesh devices was a welcome move. Women have been coming forward with severe and often lifelong problems caused by mesh devices for years. It’s estimated that there are thousands of women worldwide who have suffered complications.
Despite this, we are only now seeing a change in attitude in the UK. Women who have suffered complications caused by their mesh implant can contact our team today.
Vaginal mesh removal problems are a huge concern, and it’s a factor that ought to have been considered more seriously by regulators and the healthcare industry.
In some cases, removal of the device can be completely impossible, and can leave the victim in permanent pain and with irreversible damage for the rest of their life. This can include women being left unable to work, or even unable to walk; for the rest of their lives.
The fact that mesh implants have still been used so widely despite the known vaginal mesh removal problems is, in our view, a factor that should have been considered more.
Given that pelvic mesh problems can be so severe, it’s important for victims to know that they can be eligible to claim for compensation.
Some pelvic mesh problems can be lifelong and incredibly debilitating, leaving some victims unable to work or even walk for the rest of their lives. Even those who are fortunate enough to be able to carry on with a relatively ‘normal’ life can still suffer irreversible damage.
If you have suffered from pelvic mesh problems, we can help you claim compensation for your suffering and loss.
There were previous NICE mesh implant guidelines that were designed to ensure that the risks posted by transvaginal mesh and transvaginal tape were limited.
NICE – AKA the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence – published guidance, as did senior medical experts and healthcare leaders, about the sorts of requirements that should be met for NHS trusts that wished to carry out the procedures, and how they should go about patient selection and advice. This was designed to limit the risk involved in the use of mesh implant procedures.
At the end of 2017, that changed. In fact, in December last year, NICE altered their stance and called for an outright ban on the use of some mesh implants in the UK, and only last month did we finally see the NHS take more appropriate action.
We’re pleased with the news that NHS mesh operations are being halted in light of a recent review chaired by Baroness Julia Cumberlege.
Although this isn’t a total stop on all NHS mesh operations, it’s a widespread pause on the procedures pending further investigation into the dangers of transvaginal tape and transvaginal mesh, particularly given the seriousness of the complications that can arise.
We’ve been advising women who have suffered complications from mesh operations since 2013, so the news of the halt is, to us, long overdue.
