Da Vinci robotic surgery is a high-tech surgical option meant to increase precision and decrease recovery time. But a bad robot surgery can leave a patient with unexpected pain and scars. Our robotic surgery lawyers can help.
The da Vinci Surgical System is a multi-armed robot controlled by a surgeon sitting behind a magnified, high-resolution image of the surgical site. The robots are most commonly used for prostate removal and hysterectomies. They were used in about 400,000 surgeries in the U.S. in 2012, tripling the number of da Vinci robot surgeries done four years before.
Some people were killed or injured as a result of robotic surgery. In fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 4,600 adverse event reports including five deaths associated with da Vinci robots.
- Burns to arteries or organs
- Lacerations to organs
- Excessive bleeding
- Burns or tears in the intestines
- Tissue damage
- Nerve or muscle damage
- Severe bowel damage
