Hernia Mesh Uses, Types, Brands and More

Hernia mesh, or surgical mesh, is a medical device that supports damaged tissue around hernias as it heals. Surgeons place the mesh across the area surrounding the hernia, attaching it with stitches, staples or glue. Pores in the mesh allow tissue to grow into the device. Hernia mesh is used in nine out of 10 hernia surgeries annually in the U.S.

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, using hernia mesh may improve a patient’s outcome because the surgery and recovery may take less time compared to other treatment options. However, the agency links recalled meshes to many reports of hernia mesh complications. Some patients require hernia mesh removal surgery to treat these complications.

Why Do Surgeons Use Hernia Mesh?
A main reason surgeons use hernia mesh is to lower the risk of a hernia recurring, or coming back.

There is a high chance of hernias returning after repair
