A hernia is a medical common term that refers to the protrusion or bulge of a body organ or tissue through a weakened or damaged section. An abdominal hernia is an opening in the muscular structure mostly around the abdominal wall or groin region. This bulging is usually noticeable and often needs surgical intervention.

But the popularity of mesh implant has seen a tremendous increase both amongst the doctors and the patients as it involves faster chance of recovery from the implant. Unfortunately, these meshes have been known to cause pain after hernia surgery. The victims of these have filed for legal complaints and claiming their dues for the pain in the lawsuits.
