Did you or a love one suffer from a complication after having a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery in Connecticut? If you used a transvaginal mesh, also known as the pelvic sling, you may be in danger. There are 3,580,709 people living in Conneticut and if you live in any of the following cities you should contact a trans vaginal mesh lawyer as soon as possible. These cities include:

  • Hartford
  • Bridgeport
  • Stamford
  • New Haven
  • Norwalk
  • Waterbury
  • Bristol
  • Danbury
  • Milford
  • Middletown
The transvaginal mesh is a woven fabric made to help reinforce the walls of the vagina. In women, it helps treat bladder prolapse and other pelvic problems such as pelvic prolapse. As of July 2011, the FDA warned patients who have underwent the pelvic organ repair surgery and used a transvaginal mesh that they may be at greater risk in having mesh complications than other types of treatment. Since the manufacturers failed to warn patients and doctors about the increased risk, there may be a chance at gaining financial compensation for the pain you have been caused.

Below is a list of some of the hospitals in Connecticut where you might have had your surgery. This is a partial list so even if the hospital you had your procedure at is not in this list, you may still have a case.

  • Griffin Hospital
  • Milford Hospital
  • Danbury Hospital
  • Bristol Hospital
  • Bridgeport Hospital
  • Saint Francis Hospital & Medical Center
  • Saint Mary’s Hospital
  • St. Vincent’s Medical Center
  • Waterbury Hospital

    I am writing for my daughter, Amy B. Russo, who had a transvaginal mesh implanted at Danbury Hospital in 2009. She is still suffering the consequences of this surgery. She had an hysterectomy and she has had problems with the mesh ever since, particularly with her bladder. The reason I am writing to you is that she is trying to manage a household of four boys and a very sick husband who is in the midst of having chemo therapy for cancer.
