Intuitive Surgical said Thursday it received approval from U.S. regulators for its latest robotic system for surgery, the da Vinci 5.

The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration cleared its 510(k) form, allowing Intuitive to bring its product to market.

The company's new multiport robotic system will first be available to a small number of customers in the U.S. who worked with the company during development. Intuitive said it would generate additional data on the system before a wider commercial rollout.
