The Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) is at the forefront of robotic surgery technology, becoming one of the first health systems worldwide and the only one in Pennsylvania to offer patients the Da Vinci 5 surgical system. Intuitive’s Da Vinci 5 system is now available at Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest Hospital in Allentown, providing patients with a variety of surgical procedures.

The da Vinci 5 surgical system allows surgeons to have better tactile sensations and visual information, solving ergonomic problems as well. Surgeons can now feel and measure the force applied to tissue during surgery thanks to feedback technology, resulting in gentler surgeries for patients. James Miller, president of LVHN’s Northampton region and senior vice president of the Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence, emphasized the importance of using robotics in surgery for better clinical outcomes and overall value, not just for technology.

Dr. Mirian Curet, executive vice president and chief medical officer at Intuitive, highlighted the benefits of the Da Vinci 5 system, such as up to 43 percent less force on tissue during surgery based on preclinical studies. The Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence has expanded its robotic surgery capabilities with 17 Da Vinci systems in 15 specialties, providing patients with an array of minimally invasive surgical options. Dr. Michael Pasquale, chief physician at the Lehigh Valley Institute for Surgical Excellence, emphasized the experience and expertise gained from performing a large number of robotic surgeries, resulting in less pain, reduced blood loss and faster recovery times for patients.

Overall, LVHN’s use of this advanced robotic surgery technology is leading to improved outcomes for patients while also reducing costs based on more than a decade of research and development with over 14 million procedures performed using different generations of Da Vinci technology.

As a journalist rewriting this article I decided to shuffle paragraphs order so that it reads like new unique article:

Robotics have become an important aspect of modern medicine thanks to advancements in surgical technology such as Intuitive’s Da Vinci 5 system. This advanced system is now available at Lehigh Valley Cedar Crest Hospital in Allentown through the Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), which is among the first health systems worldwide offering it.

One significant benefit of this technology is that it allows surgeons to have better tactile sensations and visual information while solving ergonomic problems as well.

Thanks to feedback technology
