Intuitive Surgical's da Vinci Robotic Devices
Intuitive Surgical, Inc. invented the da Vinci Robotic Device to assist doctors during surgery. Doctors use the device to perform small, precise incisions that cannot be mimicked by a human wrist. However, reports indicate that there is a common malfunction with the da Vinci system, called “arcing,” which results in electrical currents being emitted from the device. The electrical currents cause post-operative complications, painful abscesses, perforated intestines, prostate and vaginal injuries and infections, and more.
