Marc J. Bern & Partners and its professional team are reviewing potential product liability lawsuits for women who have experienced problems following surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse (POP) or stress urinary incontinence (SUI) where the Cook Surgisis Biodesign mesh or another vaginal sling manufactured by Cook Medical was used.
Women have suffered debilitating and disfiguring injuries after receiving vaginal mesh or a bladder sling made by Cook Medical, as well as other manufacturers. These dangerous and defective products were never adequately tested and have been associated with:
- Erosion of the Sling Through the Vagina
- Merging of the Sling with Surrounding Tissue
- Pelvic Pain or Vaginal Pain
- Urinary Problems
- Pain During Sexual Intercourse
- Complications During Surgical Mesh Removal
Compensation may be available through a Cook Surgisis bladder sling lawsuit for women who have experienced complications that may have been avoided if adequate warnings were provided. Request a free consultation and claim evaluation.
Cook Surgisis Vaginal Mesh Problems
Problems with transvaginal mesh or bladder sling systems marketed by a number of different medical device manufacturers have caused thousands of women throughout the United States to suffer severe injuries after surgery to repair pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence.

Marc J. Bern & Partners and its professional team are investigating potential vaginal mesh lawsuits for women who experienced problems with a Cook Medical bladder sling.
Unlike most vaginal mesh products, which are synthetic, the Surgisis Biodesign bladder sling is different because it is made using the small intestines of pigs.
The Cook Surgisis Biodesign Urethral Sling was first approved in September 1999, and the Surgesis Biodesign Tension-Free Urethral Sling was approved in April 2002.
While Cook Medical has suggested that the organic origins make their surgical mesh products less likely to cause complications such as infections, many women have experienced severe and debilitating complications.
Studies have indicated that that vaginal mesh based on pig intestines may actually show a higher risk of inflammatory response, have a lower tensile strength than synthetic mesh, and some reports indicate that it adheres to the surrounding tissue in a way that makes it extremely difficult to remove.
The Cook mesh carries a similar risk of vaginal mesh problems associated with competing products, such as erosion of the mesh into the vagina, pain, and a recurrence of the urinary problems that led the women to have the mesh implanted in the first place.
Not only do these products pose a risk of serious complications, but the FDA has warned that there is little or no evidence that transvaginal insertion of a bladder sling provides any benefit over other available treatments for POP.
Cook Surgesis Biodesign Surgical Mesh Lawyers
Compensation may be available through a Cook Surgisis Biodesign transvaginal mesh lawsuit as a result of the manufacturer’s failure to adequately research their product or warn about the serious risk of complications and problems.
As a result of their decision to place profits over patient safety, many women were exposed to a risk of painful and disfiguring injuries that may permanently impact their quality of life.
Marc J. Bern & Partners is providing free consultations and claim evaluations for women who suspect that they may have received this product or another bladder sling system sold by a different company. In addition to surgical mesh manufactured by Cook Medical, lawsuits are being reviewed for:
- Bard Avaulta Mesh
- AMS Surgical Mesh
- Boston Scientific Pelvic Mesh
- Ethicon Gynecare Mesh
- Coloplast Vaginal Mesh
