Hernia Mesh is a commonly used hernia repair product that can be implanted through open or laparoscopic surgery.


A hernia occurs when an organ, intestine or fatty tissue squeezes through a hole or a weak spot in the surrounding muscle or connective tissue. Hernias often occur at the abdominal wall. Sometimes a hernia can be visible as an external bulge particularly when straining or bearing down. Hernias can occur in both men and women.
