Injuries Due to Robotic Surgery Malpractice

Have you suffered as a result of the medical negligence of robot assisted surgery?

While a robotic medical device failure may be implicated as a cause of surgical errors, there are unfortunate instances where a surgeon is responsible for unexpected complications. This is known as medical malpractice, as compared to what we call a product liability suit against the manufacturer of the robot.

Improper operation or outright carelessness by a physician may cause the severing of vital organs, such as blood vessels, ureters and the intestines. Using the da Vinci Surgical System Robot (manufactured by Intuitive Surgical, Inc., in Sunnyvale, CA) creates risks as doctors are not being adequately trained by the company. Questions are arising as to how well doctors are trained on these complicated machines before they regularly perform surgeries with them.

Medical Malpractice suits involving Intuitive Surgical Robotic Devices may allege:

  • Vaginal cuff dehiscence
  • Uncontrolled bleeding

  • Burns
  • Death
  • The careless and negligent use of the da Vinci Robotic Surgical device
