Did you experience problems with a da Vinci surgery?

You consulted with your doctor about the fibroids in your uterus, and they recommended a hysterectomy to fix the problem once and for all. With no more uterus, you'd never have to worry about them recurring and causing further problems.

It sounded good to you, especially when your doctor recommended a robotic surgery utilizing the da Vinci Surgical System and its robotic arm. There would be less downtime, your doctor promised, using this type of device.

But something went horribly wrong during your surgery. Perhaps the robotic arm malfunctioned and careened off in the wrong direction, burning and tearing the tissue of healthy organs like your bladder, bowel and kidneys.

Instead of a shorter recovery time, you were faced with months of grueling recuperation. In fact, you never completely healed at all and now must cope for the rest of your life with the side effects of a surgery gone awry.

That is the fate of many patients who underwent these da Vinci surgeries. The exact number of patients who suffered injuries and damages is unclear, in part due to the manufacturer misclassifying separate incidents into single batches.

If you suffered a worsened condition after your failed da Vinci surgery, you may be able to seek compensation for your losses and damages. But the clock is ticking, and your case could proscribe, meaning that the time to file and pursue a claim has expired.

Don't let that happen to you. Seek the counsel of a Louisville attorney to learn how you can seek civil justice after a botched da Vinci surgery.
