The da Vinci surgical robot won FDA approval in 2000, and it has since been aggressively marketed by its maker, Intuitive Surgical, Inc., as a superior alternative to traditional surgery in a variety of minimally invasive procedures. Hospitals that can afford the costly device purchase the da Vinci robot for urological, gynecological, and non-cardio thoracoscopic surgeries due to its maker’s promise that patient postoperative recovery times will be significantly shorter. To date, however, no credible study supports the manufacturer’s claim of enhanced healing. In fact, quite the opposite is true in those patients who have suffered serious to fatal injuries many medical professionals attribute to several defects in the surgical device.
Injuries that are believed to be related to da Vinci use include serious burns, intestinal ruptures, lacerations of the uterus, and a variety of injuries to organs and vessels, the latter complication being associated with exsanguinations (uncontrollable bleeding that leads to death). Over the years, Intuitive has recalled, replaced or modified a variety of the surgical robot’s defective components. As a result, many in the legal profession are now looking at numerous claims that Intuitive Surgical had acted negligently by failing to adequately test its device in order to ensure its advertised efficacy and patient safety.
