Waiting for private mesh treatment – what can you do?


Can you do anything about waiting for private mesh treatment or NHS treatment? You may be able to do so, and we may be able to help you.

Here is some information about when we may be able to do this and the basis on which we can try to achieve it.

Choose The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers to make your claim

vaginal mesh law team

The Vaginal Mesh Lawyers is a specialist team of lawyers who focus on claims for women who have suffered as a result of transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape surgery.

We have been helping women who have suffered a range of complications, including some with lifelong problems, since 2013. We are more than prepared to take on some of the biggest organisations in the sector to fight for the rights of the clients that we represent.

There are roughly three main areas in which we can help women make a compensation claim. Firstly, if the transvaginal mesh or transvaginal tape fitted is defective, there can be grounds for a claim. Next, we can also look at any surgical or treatment errors that may have occurred, such as when implanting the mesh or tape, that could lead to discomfort or damage to the surrounding tissues and organs. Finally, we can also assess if the individual had inadequate advice about the risks of surgery and all the alternative options available.

claim as soon as you can

In important worldwide news about the vaginal mesh scandal, an expert who has helped thousands of victims in the U.S. settle claims has hit out at the plastic used in pelvic mesh devices.

Are manufactures hiding surgical mesh problems?

Manufacturer Boardroom

There are some who believe that certain manufacturers have been hiding surgical mesh problems since the day they launched their products in the market.

Many manufacturers continue to deny that there’s anything wrong with the products they produce and sell, and some have passed the responsibility for problems on to alleged poor surgical technique. The longstanding debates and disputes over the safety and efficacy of vaginal mesh looks set to continue for quite some time, especially given the recent guideline reviews in the UK that have faced heavy criticism.

At the centre of all these issues remains the patients; some of whom have been left with severe and permanent complications. If side-effects of mesh have been hidden, the consequences must be severe.
