Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Lawsuit: Parker Waichman LLP Reacts to Plaintiff’s Attorney’s Closing Argument in Which He Describes Intuitive Surgical as a Car Dealership
Date:5/21/2013

New York, New York (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, is offering remarks on the closing argument of the plaintiff’s attorney in the case of the Estate of Fred E. Taylor v. Intuitive Surgical, 09-2-03136-5, Superior Court, State of Washington, Kitsap County (Port Orchard). A May 21, 2013, Bloomberg report noted that the plaintiff’s attorney, after noting that Intuitive Surgical had acted like a “car dealership” in how it deployed its strategy to train doctors to use its da Vinci surgical robot system, said the medical device manufacturer should pay more than $8 million to Taylor’s estate.

Intuitive, the attorney said, acted “like a car dealership,” seeking to tie automobile sales and service for customers; the company wanted to use its training system “to keep control of surgeons… hospitals… [and] surgeries,” he said, as quoted in the Bloomberg article.

The lawsuit, now nearing its end, charges Intuitive with failing to properly train surgeon Scott Bildsten, who performed a robotic prostate removal on Taylor, as Bloomberg reported on April 19, 2013. Bildsten, who had never performed robotic surgery unsupervised prior to Taylor’s prostate removal, allegedly struggled with the da Vinci for seven hours in September 2008. He eventually reverted to traditional surgery, and then emergency care, to fix a rectal laceration, according to Bloomberg. Taylor died last August of heart failure allegedly caused by complications from his da Vinci robotic surgery.
