Advocate Christ Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, US, has begun the first treatment of heart patients with StereotaxisGenesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) system.

Stereotaxis is a developer of robotic technologies for the treatment of cardiac arrhythmias.

A part of Advocate Health, Advocate Christ Medical Center is a provider of robotic heart rhythm care in the Midwest region of the US, with its electrophysiologists having treated more than 2,000 patients with advanced robotic technology.

With the deployment of the newly launched Genesis RMN system, the hospital is claimed to have become among the first in the world and the first in Chicago to deploy this technology to treat patients.

This solution is claimed to improve the precision and safety of cardiac ablation, a minimally invasive procedure commonly used to treat arrhythmias.

With millions of people worldwide suffering from arrhythmias, the adoption of this technology is crucial in mitigating the risks of stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac arrest associated with untreated arrhythmias, stated Stereotaxis.
