Use of Robots in Surgery Increasing

Posted on Nov 10, 2011
My colleague wrote recently about the dramatic increase in the use of robotic assistants by surgeons. Many surgeons use them for hysterectomies, prostate removals, heart valve repairs and other complex procedures. This raises the serious question of what happens if a patient gets injured by a robotic surgical assistant? Who, or what, would be held liable in a medical malpractice claim?
