Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits
The da Vinci Surgical System has been on the market since 2000, and is used in a wide range of laparoscopic surgeries, including hysterectomies, gall bladder removal, prostate removal, heart surgeries, and thyroid procedures. The da Vinci robot allows a surgeon to view a virtual reality representation of a patient’s internal organs, and perform surgery via the manipulation of hand and foot controls that remotely maneuver the machine’s four metal arms.

The da Vinci Surgical System is becoming increasingly popular, and last month Intuitive Surgical reported that sales of the device contributed to a 16% increase in earnings during the fourth quarter of 2012.* However, a Seattle Times investigation published last year revealed that critics of the da Vinci robot have raised concerns that the technology is being overused, without any evidence that it provides patients with additional benefits over traditional laparoscopy.**
StreetInsider.com recently reported that Intuitive Surgical has been named in nine da Vinci robotic surgery lawsuits alleging the device caused patients to suffer life-threating injuries. Among other things, Plaintiffs claim that Intuitive Surgical failed to disclose accurately the risks associated with use of the device. The StreetInsider.com report also pointed out that Intuitive has faced peer criticism over the robot, including studies that raise questions about the company’s marketing claims and the true risks posed by the device.***

Patients who suffered surgical burns, organ damage, or other serious injuries allegedly due to the da Vinci Surgical System may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
