Prostatectomy Errors Are Avoidable — Our Lawyers Can Obtain Compensation for Your Injuries
It is becoming much more common for prostate surgery, also known as a prostatectomy, to be done using a da Vinci robotic surgery machine than by the traditional method of laparoscopic surgery. Upward of 85 percent of prostate surgeries are now performed by doctors operating one of these machines. Unfortunately, many of these doctors receive approximately one to two days of training on the operation of the machines, unlike traditional surgery, which takes years of training.
The accuracy and expense of these machines is coming into question as more and more men are being harmed by surgical errors associated with these machines. If you believe that you have suffered from a surgical error during a prostatectomy, you need to consult with a Houston attorney experienced in handling medical malpractice cases.

Robotic Surgery and Its Drawbacks
During a robotic surgery procedure, the doctor operates the robotic arms with a joystick and foot pedals. There is a camera at the end of one of the arms so the doctor can see what is happening. This eliminates all contact with the patient, which means the doctor has no tactile response to determine whether there might be a problem. Numerous patients have suffered severe injuries during prostate surgery.
The Most Common Prostate Surgery Injuries:
- Perforated bowels or organs
- Lacerated blood vessels
