One victim of failed TVT surgery said the pain was like a cheesewire cutting into her flesh.Lydia Barnett - Partner, Coles Miller

TVT (Tension-free Vaginal Tape) surgery is a supposedly low risk operation designed to help women who have suffered incontinence after childbirth.

It involves implanting synthetic mesh tape to support the bladder.

But now pressure is mounting on the NHS. Hundreds of women across the UK want TVT operations banned because of crippling and agonising complications.

Our expert team of medical negligence solicitors is acting for a victim who underwent TVT surgery without her full consent.

She suffered physical and psychological injuries that have severely affected her ability to earn a living.

One of the most challenging aspects of her TVT surgery complications is that – at present – there is no quick medical fix.

Removing the tiny broken fragments of mesh inside her may not be possible. It may be too dangerous.

She is not alone in her suffering. Removing the mesh is a risky procedure. Any victims prepared to take that risk are still having to wait months for their operations.

That is because only two consultants in England are qualified to remove TVT mesh and one of those is booked up until October. She is dealing with five cases a week.

It is said that many victims have not complained to the NHS about their TVT procedure complications because they did not know where to turn.

That is where we come in – turn to us. We will fight your corner.

Our UK Legal 500 recommended clinical negligence solicitors handle No Win No Fee compensation claims from all over the country.
