Paul Elliott suffered nerve damage and never recovered complete use of his dominant left hand after having prostate-removal surgery in 2010 that started off using the da Vinci robotic system but was converted to a traditional open prostatectomy during the procedure.
There may have been success stories with Da Vinci but there were also failed surgeries which resulted into lawsuits against the manufacturer. You can read more about this at http://www.rotlaw.com/da-vinci-surgical-syste... .
As a state-of-the-art minimally invasive option for major surgery, da Vinci indeed has a great help to surgeons and patients. Yet complications arise from this robot-assisted surgery. There are many factors involved such as inadequate training of surgeons and the device itself, based on online reports. I came across this online resource that offered more information about the complications that da Vinci surgery may bring. Do check this out, http://davinci-lawsuit.org
