Robotic Surgery Update: Intuitive Surgical Issues Urgent Medical Device Warning Notification
Date:5/14/2013

(PRWEB) May 14, 2013

On May 8, 2013, Intuitive Surgical issued a Notification to hospitals warning of potential problems with the daVinci Robotic Surgical System. Details of the release can be found in a May 10 CNBC article “Intuitive Surgical Flags ‘Potential Issue’ With Robot”. The urgent release states that micro cracks can develop on the shears used to perform the surgery, which pose a potential burn risk to patients.

For the past seven months, trial attorneys Daniel Becnel and Dr. François Blaudeau have been tirelessly working to compel Intuitive Surgical to stop marketing the daVinci Surgical Robot due to many issues with the device they believe are potentially harmful to patients.

“We commend Intuitive Surgical for stepping up, and taking responsibility for the medical problems associated with the da Vinci Surgical Robot. This is a huge step towards innocent people being protected,” stated Dr. François Blaudeau.

Dr. François Blaudeau and Daniel Becnel hired Legal Communications Group to launch a national consumer outreach campaign to educate patients and doctors about the many adverse problems allegedly linked to the da Vinci Surgical Robot. This national campaign informed unsuspecting consumers and patients throughout the country on the potential risks of robotic surgery, and gave victims a place to seek help. Over 15,000 patients, consumers and doctors contacted the “badrobotsurgery.com” helpline and were given important facts. Unfortunately, thousands of patients who called the helpline claim to have already been seriously injured after being operated on with the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System.

As staunch consumer advocates, trial lawyers Daniel Becnel of Becnel Law Firm and Dr. François Blaudeau, practicing attorney and OBGYN, have been committed to educating patients, doctors and hospitals on the dangers associated with the da Vinci Robot.

“It is great to have such an important victory so early on in a case where thousands of patients have been adversely affected. We consider this to be another win for the trial lawyers working to protect and defend the rights of consumers. We’re so proud of the work we do because we know many lives will impacted positively.” stated trial lawyer Daniel Becnel.

Both Dr. Blaudeau and Daniel Becnel believe Intuitive’s admission is a starting point that can potentially save thousands of patients undue suffering and complications at the hands of a dangerous and largely untested new technology.
