NEW RESOURCE!!! - GPAC Mesh Information

Our GPAC team has been working closely with harmed mesh patients from all over the world. We have been analyzing studies and data to provide useful information and resources to the medical and patient communities. We have recently created a list of symptoms that are commonly seen in patients who have been harmed by surgical mesh. The list includes, but is not limited to some of the most common complications that are experienced.


Surgical mesh is used in a variety of medical situations. It can be used for hernia repair, organ prolapse, pelvic or vaginal wall reconstruction, and other surgeries. Often times, patients are unaware that mesh has been placed in their body and many patients experience complications with mesh. In 2019, the FDA ordered an immediate stop on all transvaginal mesh due to safety issues.


Surgical mesh is either made from biological sources (human cadaver, cow or pig) or from synthetic materials such as polypropylene, a synthetic plastic. Patients who have complications with surgical mesh suffer debilitating health consequences and most doctors are not trained to treat these patients. Here are some of the most common symptoms that are seen in mesh harmed patients. Our hope is to raise awareness about the dangers of mesh and to find help for patients who are suffering from mesh complications. If you or someone you know have unexplained symptoms after having surgery with mesh, please reach out to find support. We will be publishing a list of support groups soon. If you have helpful information about mesh, please contact us at www.GPACunited.org. Together, we will make a difference for patients who are suffering.
