Physicians criticize state lawsuits over pelvic mesh

In this Dec. 20, 2018, photo, Dr. Jeffrey Clemons, a pelvic reconstructive surgeon, holds a sample of transvaginal mesh used to treat pelvic floor disorders and incontinence in women as he poses for a photo in Tacoma, Wash. Clemons helped draft a letter to state Attorney General Bob Ferguson that was signed by more than 60 Washington state surgeons, arguing that Ferguson's consumer-protection lawsuit against Johnson & Johnson and its Ethicon Inc. subsidiary over the mesh products might scare patients away from the best treatment options.
