Stereotaxis™ Remote Magnetic Navigation for Cardiac Arrhythmia Patients in the Augusta, Georgia Area
The Heart Rhythm Center at Augusta University Health offers Stereotaxis™ Remote Magnetic Navigation (RMN) technology to treat complex arrhythmias in all four chambers of the heart to patients in Georgia, South Carolina and the Southeast.
Improving Access and Outcomes with Stereotaxis™
Traditional electrophysiology (EP) cardiac catheterization requires physicians to manually push a stiff catheter through the blood vessels and heart to map the cardiovascular system. However, certain cardiac arrhythmias may originate in very thin-walled areas of the heart, creating a risk of perforation during cardiac mapping and ablation.
Stereotaxis™ robotic technology gives physicians safe access to remote areas of the heart that have been difficult, if not impossible, to reach before. And computer-assisted navigation frees the physician to focus on the patient and a successful outcome rather than the mechanics of the procedure.
Putting Patient Safety First at Augusta University Medical Center
Stereotaxis GentleTouch™ technology is very safe. The system’s magnets generate magnetic fields that are less than 10 percent of the strength of fields used by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) equipment, which has been widely used for more than 20 years.
The Stereotaxis™ system offers many benefits when compared to traditional EP catheterization.
Don’t let irregular heartbeats interfere with your life or threaten your health. Our team of experienced, fellowship-trained, board certified cardiac electrophysiologists, or cardiologists, treat and diagnose disorders of the heart’s electrical system.
