Your doctor recommended a hysterectomy. She said that the procedure to remove your uterus would make a significant difference in your quality of life. The symptoms that you suffered from endometriosis or fibroid tumors or the danger that you faced from early stage cancer could be removed along with your uterus. And your doctors told you that the da Vinci surgical robot can make your hysterectomy a minimally invasive procedure with the promise of less pain and a shorter healing time than traditional hysterectomies.
That Is, If Everything Goes According to Plan…
Unfortunately, what you were not told is that the da Vinci surgical robot carries its own risks. Some patients who have had hysterectomies with the da Vinci surgical system have suffered from:
- Internal bleeding.
- Internal burns.
- Significant and dangerous infections.
- Other injuries.
These complications may result in lifelong pain or worse. They could result in death.
Don’t Suffer Another Minute Without Knowing Your Rights
If you are one of the patients who has suffered this kind of injury then you need to know your rights. Your injury may have had nothing to do with your physician. Your surgeon may have done everything right during surgery, but the da Vinci surgical system that your surgeon was using may have been defective and it may be that defect that has caused your serious injury.
You do not have to accept the consequences of your injury as a cost of surgery. Instead, if Intuitive Surgical, the company that designs and builds these robots, was negligent then you may have the right to recover damages in a pharmaceutical class action lawsuit.
