Robotic surgery may not be as reliable as advertised

In recent years, the medical profession has seen a sharp uptick in the number of robotically-assisted surgeries performed in hospitals in Pennsylvania and across the country. Surgical robots are expensive, high-tech devices that allow the surgeon to operate the robot using a computer console. The belief is that since the robot has steadier hands than a human, robot-assisted surgeries must be more accurate and less invasive than traditional surgeries.

Man's family sues Pennsylvania hospital over surgical errors

A medical malpractice suit for a surgical error is not as uncommon as many people think. Thousands of surgeries are performed every day in America, and not all of them are successful.

Other times, however, surgeries fail due the negligence of the doctor performing the procedure, and the results are often tragic.

Man awarded over $700,000 due to missed diagnosis

When patients walk into a Pittsburgh hospital - just like other hospitals around the country - they trust that their doctors will be able to make the correct diagnosis for their injuries. Unfortunately, this doesn't always happen. In some cases, the symptoms have not yet presented themselves, rendering a correct diagnosis impossible. In other cases, however, doctors simply fail to act upon an important sign or symptom. In those cases, the doctor could be guilty of a failure to diagnose, an act of negligence that can cause serious harm to patients.
