If you are one of theĀ 6,010,688 residents of Missouri and have undergone a pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery and used a transvaginal mesh sling, you may have legal recourse. In July of 2011, the FDA announced those patients who underwent this surgery and used the surgical mesh are at a greater risk of developing mesh complications than a woman who pursued another surgical treatment. Since the manufacturers of the trans vaginal sling failed to warn both patients and doctors about this risk, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

These cities include:

  • Kansas City
  • Springfield
  • St. Louis
  • Lee’s Summit
  • Independence
  • Joplin
  • Blue Springs
  • Jefferson
Sometimes called a pelvic sling, a transvaginal mesh is used to help reinforce the vaginal walls and help with bladder and pelvic prolapse in women. In the past 3 years there have been over 1,000 reported serious side effects. Some of these side effects from the vaginal mesh include irritation, mesh erosion, bleeding, pain after sex, urinary problems and more.

Here is a list of some of the hospitals in Missouri where you may 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.

  • Missouri Baptist Medical Center
  • Barnes-Jewish Hospital/Washington University
  • University of Missouri Health Care
  • Cox Health Hospital
  • Freeman Hospital
  • St. Luke’s Hospital
  • North Kansas City Hospital
  • St. Louis University Hospital
  • North Kansas City Hospital

    My elderly mother has had two surgical procedures. One was a bladder sling and more recently she had robotic vaginal prolapse procedure with mesh. She has had a lot of discomfort since then. Should we follow up with doctors or an attorney first. Please advise as to what we should do. Thank you.
