AlloDerm Abscess Attorneys

An abscess forms when pus (a collection of fluid, bacteria, white blood cells, and dead tissue) begins to gather in one part of the body. This generally occurs when an injury becomes infected by bacteria or a parasite. Abscesses can occur anywhere in the body, but often appear on the skin, lung, brain, or throat.

If a surgical site becomes infected, an abscess may begin to form. This is especially dangerous with internal surgeries such as hernia repairs; if an abscess forms inside the body, it can be more difficult to detect and treat. If you or a loved one has suffered from an abscess following an AlloDerm hernia patch procedure after the year 2000, contact the AlloDerm abscess attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-761-3187 to discuss your options.

Detecting and Treating Abscesses

When an abscess forms near the skin, it will create a swollen, red area that is often warm to the touch. This area can also be very painful. If an abscess is not treated, it can grow, potentially leading to symptoms such as fever, nausea, chills, and fatigue. In severe cases, an untreated abscess can even be fatal.

The typical treatment for an abscess is to drain it. In some cases, a course of antibiotics may also be administered. If the abscess is located within the body, surgery may be required in order to drain it.

Unfortunately, infection leading to an abscess is a risk with many different types of surgery. Many different factors can lead to a post-surgical infection, including contaminated surgical equipment. If you or a loved one has developed an abscess following AlloDerm surgery, you may want to discuss your legal rights with the experienced AlloDerm abscess attorneys of Williams Hart.
