The da Vinci Surgical System, manufactured by Intuitive Surgical, uses a robot to perform minimally invasive abdominal surgeries. Rather than cutting open the abdominal cavity, the surgeon operating the device makes only one or more small incisions. The other major advantage of the da Vinci surgical robot is that the device allows movement that is much more precise than even a skilled surgeon's hand.
However, da Vinci surgical procedures can result in serious or fatal injuries. Intuitive Surgical's own website states that equipment error or human error can lead to "injury to tissues/organs, bleeding, infection and internal scarring that can cause long-lasting dysfunction/pain."
If you or a loved one has suffered harm during a da Vinci surgical procedure, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other losses.
