Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Lawsuit: Parker Waichman LLP Reacts to a Training Specialist Who Said She Taught Doctors How to Use the Robot—Not Operate on Patients

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, and then
