As Da Vinci Surgery Robot Lawsuits Mount, Marketing Claims Questioned in Wake of New Study, Alonso Krangle LLP Comments

Melville, NY (PRWEB) April 02, 2013

Alonso Krangle LLP, a law firm focused on fighting for the rights of victims of harmful medical devices, is questioning marketing claims involving the Da Vinci Surgical System, a robotic surgery system used in minimally invasive surgeries, including hysterectomies, prostate removals, heart surgeries, gall bladder removals and bariatric surgery. New research, along with a growing number of Da Vinci Robotic Surgery lawsuit filings, as reported by, have recently cast doubt claims that the device offers patients more benefits compared to traditional laparoscopy. Most recently, a study published earlier this month by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) found no difference in complication rates among women who underwent robot-assisted hysterectomy and those who had a traditional laparoscopic procedure. However, the same study found the robotic procedure cost significantly more than laparoscopy.

Alonso Krangle is currently offering free Da Vinci Robotic Surgery lawsuit consultations to victims of alleged robotic surgery complications, including:

  •      Surgical Burns to Arteries or Organs
  •     Peritonitis (painful and tender inflammation of the lining of the abdomen)
  •     Sepsis
  •     Excessive bleeding
  •     Burning of nearby organs including the intestines
  •     Punctured blood vessels, organs or arteries
  •     Burns and/or tears of the intestines
  •     Severe bowel injuries
  •     Punctured or cut ureters
  •     Vaginal cuff dehiscence (reopening of the incision made to remove the uterus and cervix during a hysterectomy)
  •     Additional Surgical Procedures Following Robot Surgery
  •     Wrongful Death

According to a report published by the Chicago Tribune in February 2012, 250,000 hysterectomies and prostate removal surgeries were done with the Da Vinci system in 2011. The device is now used in surgeries involving everything from gastric bypasses to thyroid cancer. Unfortunately, few randomized studies have been conducted to demonstrate that patients do best if procedures are performed with the Da Vinci, according to the Tribune.

The JAMA study looked at outcomes in 264,758 women who had either laparoscopic or robotically assisted hysterectomy at 441 hospitals between 2007 and 2010. The complication rate for both groups came in at around 5%. Most patients in either group left the hospital in less than two days, though patients who had robotic surgery were slightly more likely to go home this early. However, robotic hysterectomy cost an average of $8,868/procedure, compared with $6,679 for laparoscopic surgery. “Our study indicates that, while robotic assistance was associated with increased use of minimally invasive surgery for hysterectomy, when compared with laparoscopic hysterectomy, the robotic procedure offers little short-term benefit and is accompanied by significantly higher costs,” the research team wrote.

According to a recent report from, Intuitive Surgical has been named a defendant in nine Da Vinci Surgery Robot lawsuits filed on behalf of people who suffered gruesome injuries, allegedly due to defects inherent in the device. Last summer, the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) rejected a motion to consolidate all Da Vinci Robotic Surgery lawsuits pending in federal courts in a single jurisdiction for pretrial proceedings. Court records indicate that at that time, only four claims were pending in federal court.

Victims of alleged Da Vinci Robot complications may be entitled to compensation for their pain and suffering.
