Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Malpractice

Da Vinci Robotic Surgery was touted as an innovative way to perform surgeries.

However, just because a doctor uses a robot, doesn’t mean surgical malpractice and negligence can’t still occur.

The da Vinci robotic arm device was designed to help make invasive surgeries easier for the surgeon to perform and easier and faster for the patient to recover. It is manufactured by Intuitive Surgical, a California based company. The Surgeons use the robotic arm through a computer screen, while operating joysticks at a console. The invasive surgeries include bladder, gastric bypass, gynecological, prostate, thyroid cancer, urology, some heart surgeries and other surgeries.

During 2012, the da Vinci Surgery Robot was used in nearly 450,000 times. The da Vinci robot costs $1.5 million.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) received many complaints about some of the injuries caused by the robotic arm. Additionally, many lawsuits have been filed because the patients have suffered injuries or death as a result of surgeries performed by the robot.

Some of the reported injuries and complications are:

  • Burn Injuries
  • Tissue Damage
  • Reproductive System Damage
  • Blood Vessel Injuries and burns
  • Hematomas, or pooling blood in an internal cavity due to internal bleeding
  • Fistulas
  • Bowel and Intestinal Injuries
  • Urinary Tract Damage
  • Nerve and Muscle Damage
  • Whole-Body Complications
  • Death
