Da Vinci Surgical Robot Update: FDA Issues Class 2 Recall of Intuitive Surgical’s da Vinci Robot due to Possibly Inadequate Testing of 30 Units, Notes Parker Waichman LLP
Date:7/15/2013

adow the risks of robot-assisted surgery. According to the news release, there is no good evidence to show that procedures with the da Vinci surgical robot are even as good as less invasive, far cheaper alternatives. ACOG, a group that represents 56,000 physicians, is not the only organization to express concerns about the safety and efficacy of robot-assisted surgery.

Also in March, the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Medicine has also highlighted the potential for serious complications in an advisory. The advisory stated that, in light of growing reports of injuries associated with the da Vinci, there should be more oversight for surgeons, and patients should be better informed about the risks. The Board cited examples of patients who had suffered bleeding, adhesions and damage to the bowel and ureter; in one case, a piece of rectal tissue was mistakenly left inside a patient’s abdomen.
