da Vinci Robot Surgery Injuries

More than 250,000 surgeries are performed each year with the da Vinci Surgical System, built by Intuitive Surgical Inc. While most of these surgeries come off without a hitch, some patients have suffered serious injuries during their surgeries. As a result, these injured patients have had to undergo reparative surgeries and endure lengthy recoveries.

If you or a loved one was injured during a da Vinci surgical procedure, or a family member died, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical costs, lost income, and pain and suffering. You should speak with an attorney experienced in defective medical product cases as soon as possible.

da Vinci Robot Surgery Complications

The da Vinci Surgical System is often employed in prostate, uterus and gallbladder surgeries. The great advantage of the system is that it allows for precise incisions that are not always possible using the human hand.

However, da Vinci surgeries are more time-consuming and expensive than traditional surgical procedures. Becoming proficient in the device requires extensive training, and some surgeons may not receive as much training as they need to master da Vinci surgical techniques. As a result, there have also been numerous cases involving these injuries:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Bowel and organ punctures
  • Cauterization and burns of internal organs
  • Death

Working with surgeons and other medical experts, our lawyers will learn what went wrong and what could have been done to avoid the complications you experienced. We will also make a full accounting of your economic and noneconomic losses, and seek full compensation for you.
