You can check to see if your mesh implant or mesh patch was recalled by checking your medical records at the hospital where the surgery was performed. Alternatively, you could check the paperwork that you brought home from the hospital. It should contain the product name, serial number, and other important information that will help you identify your specific product.
Once you know the mesh brand, model, and product number or serial number, you can cross reference it on the FDA’s medical device recall lookup page.
If you cannot find this information, our researchers can track it down for you and assist with any other tasks necessary to file your claim.
