Johnson & Johnson

Johnson & Johnson is a huge multinational corporation that is well known to most Americans due to its myriad of products such as baby shampoo and band-aids. Johnson & Johnson has been in existence for several generations, having been established in 1886 by brothers James, Robert and Edward Johnson in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse and Stress Urinary Incontinence

Johnson & Johnson makes many healthcare products, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Of particular interest to individuals who have undergone surgery for pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence are the vaginal mesh and similar products made by Johnson & Johnson and its affiliates, such as:

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a medical condition that is estimated to affect nearly a quarter of all women. In the U.S., the symptoms of pelvic organ prolapse are estimated to add up to billions of dollars' worth of medical expenses. Companies such as Johnson & Johnson sell a great deal of products to address pelvic organ prolapse and its symptoms, which include stress urinary incontinence.

Significant Complications from Vaginal Mesh

Unfortunately, vaginal mesh products (also known as transvaginal mesh products) from Johnson & Johnson and other companies have been the cause of very troubling complications, including:

  • erosion of the vaginal mesh (its protrusion into the vaginal wall)
  • perforation of organs such as the bladder, uterus and rectum
  • life-threatening infections
  • vaginal scarring and shrinkage
