Da Vinci Robotic Surgery Lawsuit: Parker Waichman LLP Responds to Doctor’s Testimony Alleging Intuitive Surgical’s Robotic Device Contributed to a Man’s Death
Date:4/30/2013

(PRWEB) April 30, 2013

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of victims injured by defective medical devices, is commenting on an expert witness’s testimony 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). An April 29, 2013, Bloomberg report* noted that John S. MacGregor, a cardiologist and professor of medicine at University of California, San Francisco, told the jury that the alleged “stress and complications” brought on by a protracted da Vinci-assisted prostate operation allegedly “hastened a patient’s death from heart disease.”

The patient, Fred Taylor, not only might have lived an additional five years, but could have enjoyed a better-quality lifestyle as well “had he never suffered the consequences of the botched robotic procedure in 2008,” the doctor alleged, as noted in the Bloomberg report. The state court trial in Port Orchard, Washington, has entered its third week.

According to the Bloomberg report, MacGregor pointed out for the jury that based on Taylor’s autopsy results, he had suffered a number of heart attacks in the last several years of his life, and likely had even suffered an attack the day after his Sept. 9, 2008, robotic surgery. Blood enzyme tests that measure heart-muscle damage had risen “dramatically” the day following Taylor’s surgery, the doctor added.

“What should’ve been a routine procedure turned out to be far from routine,” said William J. Dubanevich, attorney at Parker Waichman LLP. “When it was finally over, Mr. Taylor was forced to live out the remainder of his life suffering from a variety of ailments. From his autopsy results we now know that he also suffered heart attacks following his surgery.”
