Umbilical Hernias

Umbilical hernias occur in the abdominal wall, near the belly button and almost always occur in newborn babies. In most infant cases, the hernia will heal itself by age 2. However, if the hernia does not heal itself, it may require surgery. If the hernia is small enough, doctors will usually repair it with sutures. On the other hand, if it is too large, they will use a skin graft patch, such as AlloDerm. Unfortunately, these AlloDerm patches have recently been linked to numerous painful and dangerous side effects, including hernia recurrence, infection, and abscesses.

If you or someone you love has had an operation involving AlloDerm and are now suffering from its harmful side effects, you may want to pursue legal action against the manufacturer. A dedicated AlloDerm side effects attorney from Williams Hart may be able to help you obtain financial compensation. Call our offices today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case.

How a Person Gets Umbilical Hernias

Some umbilical hernias occur due to the abdominal wall not closing completely before birth, but some do occasionally occur in adults. Although anyone can develop a hernia, the following kinds of people are more vulnerable:

  • Very overweight or obese people
  • People who suffer from a chronic cough or lung ailment
  • Women who have been pregnant several times
  • Those who have a tumor in the stomach
  • People who do frequent heavy lifting
  • Babies with a low birth weight

If you developed an umbilical hernia, received an AlloDerm patch to treat it, and have suffered health complications as a result, you may be eligible to file a product liability suit against the manufacturer.
