Robosurgery Suits Detail Injuries as Death Reports Rise

By Logan Lafferty

In 2009, the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona found the complication in 21 of 510 robot hysterectomies done between 2004 and 2008, according to a study. The lead author of that report, Rosanne Kho, a gynecologic surgeon at the clinic, said in a telephone interview that while changes in surgeon techniques have lessened instances of the complication since, she has always used non-robotic methods for most hysterectomy cases.
