Representation from Pennsylvania Defective Medical Device Lawyers
Many women look for alternatives to having their tubes tied, which is the traditional form of permanent birth control. One such alternative is a medical device called Essure®. Essure, manufactured by Bayer, is advertised as a non-invasive procedure for women who would like to skip the lengthy recovery times from invasive surgeries. Since Essure was approved in 2002, upwards of half a million women have had it implanted. Since then, over 10,000 women have filed reports of serious injuries resulting from it.
