Da Vinci Robotic Surgical Injury
Were you injured by the DaVinci Surgical System? The DaVinci Surgical System, marketed and manufactured by Intuitive Surgery, Inc., has been used in thousands of hospitals in the U.S. The surgeon uses a joystick to guide a robot during surgery. It is used for hysterectomies, prostate removals and many other types of surgeries.
Hospitals use the DaVinci Surgical System not only for surgeries but also as a marketing tool to patients. Although the DaVinci Surgical System is extremely popular, there have been growing concerns that hospitals and doctors have not received adequate training. There are reports that the system itself is improperly designed and manufactured.
Extremely serious side effects have been described, including:
· Torn or burned internal organs
· Internal bleeding
· Punctured arteries and organs
· Bowel injuries
· Revision surgery
Thousands of adverse events from the DaVinci Surgical System have been reported to the FDA. If your doctor used the DaVinci Surgical System for your surgery and you were harmed, call us.
