Claim compensation for the cost of private surgery

Surgery and operations

Despite being used as a form of treatment for many years in the UK, vaginal mesh implants have been associated with incredibly harmful and debilitating complications for a long time now. The only hope of reversing these side-effects can be further surgery in some cases, but difficult mesh removal procedures are not easily available due to the expert knowledge and skill required to perform such an operation. In such cases, victims may be eligible to claim compensation to cover the cost of private surgery, and we may be able to assist with this in some cases.

These medical devices were conceived with the aim of treating problems like pelvic organ prolapse and urinary incontinence, but have proved to be unfit for purpose for many patients. The complications that can be caused by vaginal mesh can be irreversible, as the implants are designed to be permanent. Corrective or removal surgery can be possible in some cases, but it is not easy.

If you have been harmed by vaginal mesh that has arisen from negligence, you should not have to pay to treat a condition that has been caused through no fault of your own. A claim for the cost of private surgery could, in some cases, form part of a wider medical negligence claim to account for the injustice you have suffered at the hands of medical professionals.

Vaginal mesh recovery problems – claiming compensation

problems

In recent years, vaginal mesh has been used widely across health services in the UK as a means of treating problems such as prolapse and incontinence in female patients. However, it was not until many women came forward to report serious complications that concerns were raised about the safety of the medical device. Even as campaigners strive to have the use of vaginal mesh banned permanently, this is not the end for some affected women, as many are suffering from vaginal mesh recovery problems.

When vaginal mesh complications occur they can, unfortunately, be very difficult for the symptoms to abate in some instances. This is largely due to the difficulty in removing the implants as they are designed to be permanent. This can mean that only specialist surgeons have the skills required to execute the removal procedure and, in some cases, only partial removal can be possible.

We believe that the responsibility for vaginal mesh complications may lie, in part, with the medical professionals who treated affected patients, and manufacturers in some instances also. In cases where we can prove that your vaginal mesh complications were caused by the negligence of your doctor, you could be in line to receive compensation.

Protrusion injuries caused by vaginal mesh

Surigcla mesh problems

Since the dangers of vaginal mesh began to emerge, many different kinds of complications have been reported. Many of the complications associated with vaginal mesh involve significant pain and injury, with protrusion injuries sometimes being one of the more serious problems.

Protrusion can occur when vaginal mesh erodes or cuts through the vagina and affects surrounding tissue, and sometimes even nearby organs. The complication can demonstrate a failure of the mesh implant to stay in place, and it can be capable of causing severe pain for those affected. Protrusion can also lead to further side-effects and can lead to permanent or long-lasting problems and damage, so this is a very serious issue indeed.
