It was reported by an attorney that the patient underwent hernia repair surgery on (b)(6) 2015 and mesh was implanted. It was reported that the patient underwent removal surgery and hernia repair surgery on (b)(6) 2015 and mesh was implanted during which the surgeon noted a defect measuring approximately 10x6 cm in diameter was encountered.
