The da Vinci surgical robot: A medical breakthrough with risks for patients
from NBC News
Laurie Featherstone says she was about to have a hysterectomy in March 2015 when her doctor asked a question she was not expecting. Did she want to have the surgeon use a robot for the procedure? "[The doctor] said if she were me, she'd elect to have the robot," recalled Featherstone, a hairstylist from this suburb northeast of Des Moines, Iowa.
