There are many different medical issues that may force a Cleveland patient to have surgery. Whether it is something relatively minor or something that could potentially be life saving, there are risks associated with surgery. A skilled Cleveland surgeon can navigate those risks, however, and safely perform the operation. Yet, when he or she makes a mistake during surgery, he or she can seriously or fatally injure a patient.
But for the family of a man who died from complications from a prostatectomy in 2008, they are hoping a jury will find the robotics company Intuitive Surgical Inc. responsible for their loved one's death, not the surgeon. They claim that the company is the one responsible for the man's death, as it failed to provide sufficient training to the doctors using their equipment.
