Da Vinci Robot Lawsuit News: Bernstein Liebhard LLP Notes Growing Debate Surrounding Robotic Surgery

According to a report published by the Tribune-Review on July 6th, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), which owns eight da Vinci Surgical Systems, has chosen not to heavily market its robotic surgery services.

Last year, Dr. Nelson published a study questioning the cost of robot-assisted prostate surgery that revealed that, on average, UPMC had lost more than $4,000 on each such procedure.*

The Firm is currently offering free legal evaluations to individuals who allegedly suffered serious robotic surgery complications in procedures involving the da Vinci Surgical System.

The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) is also reviewing reports of
