Representation for your Da Vinci robot lawsuit
Robotic surgery is an option that’s gaining in popularity within the medical field. Because it’s so new, patients and hospital personnel are often not as informed about this procedure and its complications. This form of surgery uses smaller incisions than traditional laparoscopic surgery, but carries many risks.
Da Vinci robotic surgery is associated with a number of surgical mistakes and the spreading of some cancer cells. Most problems that surgical patients encountered were noticed far into the healing process. These included finding objects broken off inside the body, internal burns, and tears.
Robotic Surgery Fallacies & Mishaps
Hospitals are required to report fallacies with devices. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) receives notification of robotic surgery mishaps but by 2013 it was noted that they’d only received 245 reports including 71 deaths. Further investigation showed many more incidents had actually occurred, some not reported fully and others not reported at all.
It’s important to tell patients the risks involved in this surgery, including the fact that for certification surgeons often only have a few days of training on a cadaver before conducting an actual live-person surgery.
There is some hope on the horizon, however. In 2014, Intuitive Surgical Inc., the makers of the Da Vinci surgery robot, announced that they were taking $67 million against that year’s earnings in order to settle claims against them. While this is a start in the right direction, it’s likely the company will need to pay out much more as the lawsuits roll in.
