I am looking for data about the safety of the Da Vinci Robot.

  • Have there been recalls on the Da Vinci Robot for not functioning properly?
  • Have patients experienced terrible results via the use of the Da Vinci Robot and have they had to have other operations to correct mistakes made by the Da Vinci Robot?
  • What kind of data format are you looking for?

  • Unfortunately, this is not the right place for such questions. This forum is for asking questions about how to program and work with the openFDA API.

While I am not comfortable offering advice on the saftey of a device I will offer a method in which you can do your own research leveraging the OpenFDA API. Here is a search of medical device recalls for the term "Da Vinci" - http://www.researchae.com/recalls?reporttype=device&from_date=2004-01-01&to_date=2014-11-30&search=Da+Vinci
