By adopting the Stereotaxis Genesis System, Corewell Health inflate its robotic program for treating heart rhythm disorders

Heart rhythm disorders can now be treated through robotics with Corewell Health's Stereotaxis Genesis System

FREMONT, CA: Robotics is an integral part of our electrophysiology program at Corewell Health and reflects our ongoing commitment of being at the forefront of cardiovascular care, said Dr. Musa Dahu, cardiac electrophysiologist at Corewell Health. Adopting the Genesis RMN system will allow us to continue to provide the most advanced care for patients including those suffering from the most complex cardiac arrhythmias.

Robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias are pioneered by Stereotaxis, the global leader in robotic technology. Physicians at Corewell Health's Fred & Lena Meijer Heart Center, part of Corewell Health, have successfully treated patients using the Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) system.

Nearly 500 patients have been successfully treated by electrophysiologists at Corewell Health using advanced robotic technology. A Genesis system will now be available at the hospital, making it one of the first RMN centers in the world and the first in Michigan to do so.

We are delighted to continue our partnership with the physicians at Corewell Health as they advance the frontiers of patient care and clinical science, said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO of Stereotaxis. We look forward to working with Corewell Health to extend its leadership in arrhythmia care in Grand Rapids.

Cardiovascular ablation, a common minimally invasive procedure to treat arrhythmias, can now be performed with robot precision and safety thanks to robotic magnetic navigation. Arrhythmias are abnormal heart rhythms caused by a heart that beats too quickly, too slowly, or irregularly. Strokes, heart failures, and sudden cardiac arrest can increase the risk of arrhythmias if left untreated.
