Nadrich & Cohen
Robotic Surgical System Side EffectsSpecialists
Nadrich & Cohen, a prominent national medical device defective products law firm, is representing robotic surgery side effect victims throughout the country. In 2000, the FDA approved the Robotic Surgery System for use in connection with certain laproscopic procedures. The perceived benefits of the robotic device are to perform less-invasive laproscopic procedures in order to shorten recovery time and limit blood loss. The robotic device is currently being used for hysterectomies, gastric bypasses, prostate removal, bladder surgeries, thyroid surgeries and other types of procedures.
Sadly, complications from these surgeries have arisen. Complications include the following:
- Tears and/or burns of the intestines;
- Punctured blood vessels;
- Severe bowel injuries;
- Cut ureters;
- Excessive bleeding; and
- Vaginal related injuries.
Our investigation has revealed that surgeons may have been misled due to the manufactuerer's failure to disclose to them all of the potential problems associated with the use of the robotic device. For example, failure to fully disclose all risks associated with improper calibration of electric current and improper positioning of laser.
We also believe the surgeon may not have been provided comprehensive instruction to its trained surgeons prior to their operation of the robotic device.
Our clients legal claims are based on the following:
- Inadequate training. Did not train to a comprehensive manner surgeons to correctly use the robotic device;
- The robotic arms were not correctly designed as they did not fully insulate patients from excessive electrical current during the surgical procedure which, in turn, causes burns, tissue tears and other side effects.
- Robotic failure to disclose the above problems which it probably had knowledge of. Possible failure to disclose the results of any pre-marketing testing with the type of energy the robotic device uses - called monopolar energy.

We have experts who are investigating the device's use of monopolar energy to correctly and / or incorrectly cut, burn or cauterize the surrounding areas to the surgical location as well as the possible inadequate insulation of the robotic machine's arms.
Side effects include:
- Damage to the surrounding organs, vessels or tissues;
- Damage to ureters, arteries, blood vessels, bowel, bladder, vaginal cuff, and other organs.
Robotic surgery injuries are often diagnosed long after the patient is released from the hospital. We have clients who have already been at home when they learned of the side effects and had to return for additional hospitalization, additional surgeries, etc.
We are proud that we have put together the strongest national team of expert witnesses, lawyers, doctors and nurses to assist our robotic surgery side effect clients and to fight head-to-head with the manufacturer responsible for our clients' injuries.
