It’s been three years since Laurie, a hairdresser from Iowa, had a hysterectomy.
And her nightmare still isn’t over.
When her doctor suggested he perform the operation using a da Vinci surgical robot, it seemed like a good idea.
There was supposed to be less scarring… less downtime… and a faster recovery.
Instead, the operation damaged a kidney duct and even burned Laurie’s colon.
She ended up needing a permanent colostomy.
And Laurie is not alone.
These da Vinci robots come with some serious… and potentially deadly…secrets that NOBODY in mainstream medicine is talking about.
But knowing the TRUTH could help you avoid disaster… and even an early grave.
Robot revolution? Not so fast…
I bet if your car had been recalled 175 times, you wouldn’t feel great about driving it.
Well, that’s the EXACT number of times the da Vinci surgical robot has been recalled over the past 10 years.
They sure don’t put that in the marketing literature, do they?
And some of the recalls were for serious stuff – such as surgical arms that could fail or move uncontrollably.
These recalls are absolutely TERRIFYING… and they’re not even the worst thing about the da Vinci.
You see, these surgical robots cost about $1.4 million a pop.
So when hospitals buy one, they’re under ENORMOUS pressure to recoup the investment… FAST.
Surgeons end up using the da Vinci robots WAY before they’re ready – and that puts you at HUGE risk.
Dr. Robert Poston, chief of cardiothoracic surgery at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in New York, told NBC News that he only had TWO HOURS of training on the device before he performed his first surgery with it.
“It’s woefully inadequate, woefully inadequate the way it’s currently being done,” he said. “We shouldn’t be operating until we’ve done all of the training that we think is reasonable.”
These under-trained surgeons are likely the reason that there have been 20,000 adverse events connected to the da Vinci filed with the FDA over the past 10 years.
These adverse events include serious injuries… hundreds of deaths… you name it.
Listen, every surgery has risks. But hospitals and doctors talk about the da Vinci as if it practically erases those risks.
And that’s just not true.
Before agreeing to ANY robotic surgery, always find out how much training the surgeon has… and how many times he’s used the equipment before.
A few extra questions now could end up saving your life down the road.
