Ethicon Physiomesh® Flexible Composite Hernia Mesh

Our firm is now investigating claims of individuals who received Ethicon Physiomesh® Flexible Composite hernia mesh.

The product was voluntarily recalled in May 2016, after Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson subsidiary, approached a pair of observational hernia repair registries seeking an analysis of the product's success rate. The registries determined that the Ethicon device failed at higher rates compared to that of similar hernia mesh repairs. Even though the studies were not published, key details were made public in removal notices released by Johnson & Johnson. Patients with the Ethicon device suffered above average hernia recurrence and reoperation rates following laparoscopic procedures, according to the notice.

If you or a loved one have had hernia repair surgery using Ethicon Physiomesh® Flexible Composite hernia mesh, and have since suffered from hernia recurrence requiring additional surgeries, then please contact our office to evaluate your potential claim.
