Common Robotic Surgery Complications
The FDA has approved only one robotic surgery equipment that can handle applying appropriate pressure during surgery. Most robotic equipment has yet to respond to “haptic feedback,” which means feeling tissue texture and knowing the amount of pressure to apply.
While a human physician moves the robotic arm to perform a surgery, he or she can’t get a proper view of the operation site. Instead, the physician operates from a remote site, relying on a video screen rather than feeling the pressure exerted by his or her hands. Even while the skillful robotic arm applies precise cuts, most robots have difficulty applying the right amount of pressure to repair an injury.
With these difficulties, it’s not surprising that a robotic surgery can result in complications. Robotic surgery attorneys in Seattle, WA can help you determine if your surgery caused further injury.
