Texas Prostate Surgery Malpractice Lawyers
Prostatectomy Mistakes Are Preventable – Our Attorneys Will Help You Get Justice for Harm Caused to You
A prostate operation, also called a prostatectomy, is now often completed via a da Vinci operation robot and not by the previously used laparoscopic procedure. More than 85% of prostatectomies are completed via robotic surgery. However, often the surgeon only practices operating the robot for one or two days before their first operation, as opposed to the in-depth education normally required for a surgery.
The efficiency and cost of robotic surgeries is now under scrutiny as an increasing amount of injuries are resulting from this method of operating. A Houston lawyer familiar in dealing with surgical mistakes can help you if you think that you have been negligently injured during a prostate operation.

Operation Robots and the Downsides
An operation completed via a robot is controlled by the surgeon externally. The surgeon relies on real time video footage to ensure there are no complications. This means that the surgeon does not have a physical connection with the body and may not immediately notice if there is an issue. Some of the serious complications that can occur during a prostatectomy are:
- Perforated bowels or organs
- Lacerated blood vessels
It is important that you know how your injury has been caused. Our attorneys review your records with surgical specialists to understand what has happened and calculate the cost to you going forward. We ensure that the responsible parties are held to account for their errors.
