sed/awk changing values

Can somebody help me out and provide me with a SED or AWK solution that converts TO_DATE CLAUSE -> TIMESTAMP

I need to keep the PARTION value (HISTORY_20110417) and DATE/TIME value (2011-04-18 00:00:00) the same for every line

Code:
 
PARTITION HISTORY_20110417 VALUESLESSTHAN(TO_DATE(' 2011-04-18 00:00:00','SYYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS','NLS_CALENDAR=GREGORIAN'))
 
PARTITION HISTORY_20110417 VALUESLESSTHAN(TIMESTAMP' 2011-04-18 00:00:00')
 

Thanks in advance to all who answer

Is Perl OK?
Code:
perl -F"," -nae '$F[0]=~s/TO_DATE\((.*)/TIMESTAMP\1)\n/;print $F[0]' file

or shorter:
Code:
perl -pe 's/TO_DATE\(([^,]+).*/TIMESTAMP\1)/' file
