Accidents Caused By Da Vinci Robotic Surgical Devices

Advances in medical science and technology have ultimately led to robotic surgery. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for surgeons to have difficulty performing these new procedures and cause serious injuries. If you or a loved one have been injured during a laparoscopic or robotic surgery, schedule a free consultation with an attorney at our firm.

Even a properly trained medical professional can lose his or her perspective during a surgical procedure. Many surgical robots require doctors to watch a computer monitor rather than see the internal organs in live 3-D. The attorneys at Johnstone & Gabhart, LLP, have more than 50 years of combined experience in medical negligence cases. We will fully investigate your injury and the negligence of your doctor while developing a case strategy uniquely tailored to your situation. When necessary, we can call upon trusted medical professionals to provide insight or advice in complex medical malpractice cases.

Common da Vinci robotic surgical device injuries can include:

  • Torn or burned blood vessels
  • Tears or burns to internal organs
  • Excessive bleeding
  • Sepsis
  • Peritonitis
  • Bowel lacerations

Originally developed by Intuitive Surgical, Inc., for hysterectomies and prostate removal surgeries, the da Vinci surgical robot is now used by medical professionals in a number of other surgical procedures. If your surgeon has not been properly trained in the operation of the device, or has not performed complex surgeries using this new technology, you or your loved one might be at risk for additional damage or wrongful death. Do not hesitate to schedule a free initial consultation with an experienced Charleston lawyer to learn more about your legal options for compensation.
