Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits
The Da Vinci Surgery System is a remote controlled surgical robot marketed by Intuitive Surgical that is intended to give surgeons more range of movement in minimally invasive 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. Approved for sale in the U.S. in 2000, the robot is used in a wide range of laparoscopic surgeries, including hysterectomies, gall bladder removal, prostate removal, heart surgeries, and thyroid procedures.
According to a recent Seattle Times investigation, the Da Vinci Surgery Robot has been enthusiastically adopted by hospitals seeking to increase market share. In the article, critics of the technology raised concerns that the Da Vinci Robot is being overused, without any evidence that it provides patients with additional benefits over traditional laparoscopy. The Seattle Times also noted that a growing number of Da Vinci Surgery Robot lawsuits allege patients sustained severe injuries, including surgical burns and organ damage, in procedures involving the device. Among other things, plaintiffs claim the Da Vinci Robot suffers from serious design flaws, and that a lack of adequate physician training can lead to serious injury during robotic surgery procedures.*
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.
