Intuitive Surgical, the manufacturer of the da Vinci surgical robot device, may have failed to accurately inform patients of the risks associated with its use.
Complications of da Vinci surgery may include damage to blood vessels, bowel and bladder injuries, internal burns and internal tears.
Since its launch in 2000, the da Vinci robot has been installed in more than 2,000 hospitals. The robot uses remote-controlled arms to give surgeons precise access to internal organs through relatively small incisions. Manufacturer Intuitive Surgical touts the da Vinci’s smaller incisions, reduced blood loss and faster recoveries.

Da Vinci surgical robot complications include:
In May 2013 Intuitive acknowledged that it had alerted users of the da Vinci robotic surgical system to the possibility of dangerous cracks developing in cutting instruments that accompany the system. These cracks can allow powerful electrical charges to arc from the instrument and cause severe burns to patients’ internal organs.
Da Vinci surgical robot may be linked to other severed injuries including torn blood vessels and perforated organs. Some patients have suffered additional corrective surgeries. Some da Vinci lawsuit plaintiffs allege that injuries are complicated by the fact that problems don’t become apparent until after surgery, resulting in delayed treatment.
