If you are one of the 2,817,222 residents currently living in Utah and have recently had a transvaginal mesh sling used during your pelvic organ prolapse repair surgery, you may be at risk. The transvaginal mesh is designed to help woman treat bladder and pelvic prolapse problems, as well as to reinforce the vaginal walls. The FDA stated in July of 2011 that women who chose to pursue the trans vaginal mesh as opposed to other options are at a higher risk for developing mesh complications. Since the manufacturers of the trans vaginal mesh had failed to warn of this serious increased injury, many have come forward with legal claims against them.

The following cities in Utah include:

  • Salt Lake City
  • Orem
  • Ogden
  • St. George
  • West Valley City
  • Provo
  • Sandy
  • Layton
  • Taylorsville
  • South Jordan
  • Logan
  • Murray
  • Lehi
  • Draper
  • Riverton
  • Pleasant¬†Grove
  • Clearfield
  • Cottonwood Heights
  • Spanish Fork

Sometimes called a pelvic sling, the transvaginal mesh has been reported to show side effects such as bleeding, mesh erosion, pain during sex, urinary problems, vaginal scarring, infections, discomfort, bowel problems, and more. If you feel like you are at risk, contact a transvaginal mesh lawsuit lawyer in Utah right away to see if you have a case. You may be eligible to gain legal compensation to help pay for your pain, suffering, and medical expenses.

Here are a few of the hospitals in Utah where you may have had your surgery performed but this is not a complete list. Even if you do not see the hospital where your procedure was performed you still may have a case.

  • Intermountain McKay-Dee Hospital Center

    I had a sling implanted during a hysterectomy on 5/29/12. Since that date, I have had complications including pain and recurring infection. I have had two surgical revisions since that date. I am trying to find an attorney in Utah to assist me with possible legal recourse as I have missed alot of work and have large medical bills.

    Thank you,

    I had this surgery approximately 13 months ago and have since suffered from incontinence, frequent infections, painful intercourse.
