ST. LOUIS, March 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), the global leader in innovative robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias, today announced the grand opening of a new robotic electrophysiology program at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Broward Health is among the first in the nation, and the first in Florida, to offer the latest Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation System to treat heart rhythm disorders.
“Advancing patient care is our number one priority, and we are excited to make this unique technology available, expanding our electrophysiology capabilities to treat the most complex heart arrhythmias with heightened precision,” said Ahmed Osman, M.D., Medical Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology.
The Genesis RMN system introduces the benefits of robotic precision and safety to cardiac ablation, a common, minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias. Tens of millions of individuals worldwide suffer from arrhythmias – abnormal heart rhythms that result when the heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. When left untreated, certain arrhythmias can significantly increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac arrest.
“Broward Health is committed to adopting innovative technology and making it available to patients close to home,” said Shane Strum, President & CEO of Broward Health. “We are proud to be the first in Florida to introduce this system to further enhance the comprehensive range of advanced cardiac services we deliver to our community.”
“We are delighted to work with Broward Health as it pioneers this technology for the benefit of patients in Florida,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO of Stereotaxis. “We applaud their leadership and look forward to supporting their efforts to improve patient care and build a preeminent heart rhythm program.”
