Our Michigan medical malpractice lawyers represent patients like you who have suffered injuries due to a medical mistake made by the surgeon, doctor, or hospital. There are risks and complications associated with every robotic surgery, and even though prostate surgery with a robot is an innovative technology for performing this procedure, often times patients suffer permanent damage due to the negligent performance of the operator.
Surgeons who perform this type of surgery should be well educated and experienced with this type of technology, but unfortunately that is not always the case. In fact, according to a study done in the Journal of American Medical Association, by Dr. Jim Hu, surgeons are only trained to use this robot in a weekend course with the manufacturer.
