Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits

da vinci robot lawyerThe da Vinci Surgical System is a robotic surgery platform used in minimally invasive procedures, including hysterectomies, prostatectomies, heart surgeries and thyroid procedures. The da Vinci is Intuitive Surgical, Inc.’s main product and was used in 350,000 operations in 2012. Da Vinci surgery has become a popular option for patients, due in part to the company’s promises that its use can result in quicker recoveries, less bleeding, and minimal scarring compared to other currently available options. However, according to a report published by Bloomberg.com in October 2013, there have been no large, randomized studies conducted to back these claims.

Our Firm’s da Vinci robot attorneys are investigating claims that Intuitive Surgical failed to adequately disclose and/or misrepresented the potential risks and/or benefits of the da Vinci Surgical System. In October 2013, the company revealed in a regulatory filing that it had been named in 50 such claims, all of which allege patients suffered serious, and in some cases deadly, injuries due to the da Vinci robot. However, some robotic surgery lawyers are expecting hundreds, if not thousands, of additional filings, as media reports indicate that serious adverse event reports involving the da Vinci robot have been increasing.
