The da Vinci surgical robot lawyers at Rottenstein Law Group LLP, which maintains a side effects and lawsuits website at http://www.davincilawsuit.us, are evaluating da Vinci cases on behalf of those who allege that their surgeries caused them harm. This move follows a series of news reports about the alleged risks of the device.
The da Vinci features four robotic arms with precision tools and cameras that ostensibly allow a surgeon to perform procedures such as hysterectomies and prostate removals less invasively than with his or her two hands alone. The device, manufactured by Intuitive Surgical, has been found to cause potentially dangerous side effects, such as internal burns, nerve damage and lacerations, according to an Aug. 2 CNN report.* Additionally, da Vinci maker Intuitive Surgical recently initiated a class-2 recall of about 30 da Vinci units because of potential safety compliance issues, according to a July 12 Bloomberg story.**
“As a firm that evaluates da Vinci robot lawsuits, the Rottenstein Law Group has spoken with numerous people about the alleged risks of what is supposed to be a high-tech medical solution,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group LLP.

Intuitive Surgical asserts that it is fully committed to superior training opportunities for surgeons and surgical teams in the use of its products, but notes that it does not participate in determining when a surgeon is adequately prepared to operate using the da Vinci Surgical System.
