As Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits Move Forward, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Announces New Website to Provide Consumers with Information on Ongoing Robotic Surgery Litigation
Date:11/23/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) November 23, 2013

With da Vinci robot lawsuits alleging injuries due to the da Vinci Surgical System continuing to move forward in courts throughout the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP announces that it has launched a new da Vinci robot lawsuit website (http://www.davincirobotlawsuitclaims.com). The new website will provide patients and their families with the most updated news on the da Vinci robot, including the ongoing litigation of personal injury claims involving robotic surgery complications alleged to have been caused by the device.

“In light of recent media accounts of a rise in reports of robotic surgery complications, as well as the ongoing litigation of da Vinci lawsuits, we felt it was important to take further steps to provide convenient access to information on this issue,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free da Vinci lawsuit evaluations to anyone who may have suffered serious injuries, including surgical burns, torn blood vessels, and organ perforations, in procedures involving the da Vinci Surgical System.

Da Vinci Robot Lawsuits
According to a recent report from Bloomberg.com, the da Vinci Surgical System has become an increasingly popular alternative for patients undergoing prostatectomies, hysterectomies and other minimally invasive procedures. However, some critics have charged that the growth of robot surgery is the result of aggressive marketing that touts the supposed advantages of robotic surgery without much scientific evidence to back up such claims.*

Over the past year, questions about the safety and efficacy of robotic surgery have continued to mount. According to Bloomberg, at least 50 da Vinci robot lawsuits have been filed by individuals who allegedly suffered serious, and in some cases fatal injuries allegedly due to the device. At the same time, the article noted that reports of robotic surgery complications to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), some of which involved patient injuries, more than doubled over the past year.*

In September, another Bloomberg.com report detailed findings published in Obstetrics & Gynecology that showed no advantages over robotic hysterectomy compared to other minimally invasive alternatives. The same study also found that robotic procedures may even double a woman’s risk of developing post-operative pneumonia.**

In August, a study published in the Journal of Healthcare Quality suggested that da Vinci complications may be underreported to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA).*** In February, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that the costs associated with robotic surgery hysterectomy was more expensive compared to other methods, with little difference in complication rates.****

Most recently, an FDA survey involving a small group of doctors who use the da Vinci that was released on November 8th revealed that training on the device is an issue that may impact patient safety. Some of the doctors surveyed by the agency also reported observing a number of da Vinci complications, including reversible limb palsy, temporary nerve damage in the fingers, seromas in obese patients, bleeding from perforated bowels, urethral stricture/stenosis, and peripheral vision loss.

Robotic surgery patients who suffered serious complications allegedly caused by the da Vinci robot may be entitled to compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
