CNBC Investigation Uncovers New Information about Robotic Surgery; San Francisco Personal Injury Lawyer Jeff Nadrich Responds
CNBC Investigations, Inc. has launched a thorough investigation into the safety and effectiveness of robotic surgical procedures. A summary of that investigation was published on March 19th at CNBC.com. The investigation has uncovered new information about reported injuries and deaths stemming from surgeries performed with a popular robotic device.
The device is used to conduct complex surgeries in a minimally invasive manner. Common procedures include hysterectomies and prostate removals. A trained physician controls the device remotely while observing a 3D monitor. According to CNBC, the manufacturer collected more than $2 billion in revenue last year alone.
Among other things, CNBC reported that “a high-pressure sales culture driven by quarterly ‘quotas’ on surgical procedures has led sales people to lean on surgeons to do more robotic surgeries,” and that there has been “a sharp rise in lawsuits and complaints about injuries, complications and even deaths following [these] procedures.”
San Francisco personal injury lawyer Jeff Nadrich has been following the news and latest research, and believes that many robotic surgery patients may be entitled to compensation. According to Nadrich, “If you or a loved one has experienced painful or even fatal side effects as a result of receiving a robotic surgical procedure, the legal liability may lie with the hospital – or, more often – with the manufacturer. A trained legal expert can help you to make an informed decision in how to proceed.”
Nadrich urges all robotic surgery side effect victims to seek the advice of a qualified and knowledgeable legal team as quickly as possible, in order to ensure that the right evidence can be accurately collected.
