An upgrade is indeed needed for these surgical system. I think the problems will continue if the machine is not upgraded. I have also read some of the articles about the da Vinci online and at which made me think twice of going through a surgical procedure using the machine. It still needs more trials and test runs before experts say that it is safe.
