HACKENSACK, N.J., April 9, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Hackensack Meridian Hackensack University Medical Center, a center of excellence and an international leader in robotic-assisted surgery, was selected to be one of only 14 centers in the world, and the only in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, to acquire the Intuitive Surgical da Vinci 5 multiport surgical system. With more than 10,000 times the computing power and the first-of-its-kind force-sensing technology, the da Vinci 5 is the most advanced surgical technology available.

The Hackensack University Medical Center team performed the first procedures ever using the new system to treat the four patients on Monday, April 1, 2024.

Da Vinci 5 builds on Intuitive's da Vinci Xi's highly functional design, which surgeons and care teams around the world have used in more than 7 million procedures to date. The system includes more than 150 enhancements, including:

Enhanced precision and control: Da Vinci 5's design and engineering enhancements, including new surgeon controllers and powerful vibration and tremor controls, make it the smoothest and most precise system Intuitive has developed to date, helping surgeons maintain comfort during long procedures and potentially reduce fatigue.

Next-generation 3D display and image processing: Da Vinci 5 is equipped with Intuitive's highest quality and most natural 3D imaging system, enabling surgeons to see more today, and supporting future generations of surgical endoscopes and vision software as those technologies evolve.

First-of-its-kind force-sensing technology: Da Vinci 5 introduces Force Feedback technology and optional instruments that enable the system to measure, and surgeons to feel, subtle forces exerted on tissue during surgery —something no other surgical technology in any modality offers. In preclinical trials with surgeons at all experience levels, Force Feedback demonstrated up to 43 percent less force exerted on tissue, which may translate to less trauma on tissue. The ability to measure this force adds an important new data stream to surgical data science, which can bring future analytical insights supported through artificial intelligence. Force Feedback instruments, which are optional for use with da Vinci 5, are cleared for use in the same procedures as da Vinci Xi, except pediatric and cardiac procedures, and a specific contraindication for the Force Feedback needle driver for use in suturing during hysterectomy and myomectomy procedures.
