As technological advances are made around the world, those advancements tend to reach the medical industry quickly. That’s certainly true of the da Vinci Surgical Robot—an advanced surgical tool used in 2,000+ medical facilities around the world. More than 10 years ago, this device was approved for use in laparoscopic surgeries, such as prostate removals and hysterectomies, yet concern over its safety continues to be in question.
In recent years, certain procedures performed by da Vinci Surgical Robots have resulted in increased complications for the patient. The issue is the loss of tactile feedback for the surgeon, which he/she depended upon previous to incorporating surgical robots into the operating room. When these complications arise, the patient is often forced to go through additional painful, invasive surgeries to correct the issues, which carry their own risks.
