… NBC’s Rock Center focused on the case of a da Vinci surgical robot used to do a hysterectomy where dangerous complications ensued. A suit is in progress.
… The ACOG (American Congress of Gynocologists) suggests that doctors help patients separate marketing hype from reality regarding hysterectomies.
… NBC’s bottom line: “Hospitals have a responsibility to set the bar higher than they have. This is really exciting technology. But great technology does not make great surgeons; great surgeons make the technology even better.”
Watch the NBC video.
… Read about a just-concluded trial where Intuitive Surgical was found not guilty here.
