02/22/24 at 4:15 PM EST

ST. LOUIS, Feb. 22, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today announced the first treatment of patients with a newly launched Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation (RMN) system at Intermountain Medical Center, flagship hospital of Intermountain Health, based in Salt Lake City.

Intermountain Medical Center is the leading provider of robotic heart rhythm care in Utah and the Intermountain Region. Electrophysiologists at the hospital have treated more than 1,000 patients using advanced robotic technology. The hospital is now among the first in the world, and the first in Utah, to offer the Genesis RMN system to patients.

“Delivering outstanding patient care using the best technology and science is our primary focus at Intermountain,” said Michael Cutler, MD, cardiac electrophysiologist at Intermountain Medical Center. “For 15 years, our electrophysiology team has leveraged the precision and safety of robotics when treating cardiac arrhythmia patients. We are excited to enhance that commitment to patients with the latest advances in technology using the Genesis System.”

Robotic Magnetic Navigation 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, arrhythmias may significantly increase the risk of stroke, heart failure, and sudden cardiac arrest.

“Intermountain Health and Intermountain Medical Center are committed to investing in the most advanced and promising technologies that support our patients and enable us to treat the most complex conditions with confidence,” added Ralph Jean-Mary, president of Intermountain Health’s Utah Central Market and CEO of Intermountain Medical Center. “We are excited by the launch of our new robotic heart care program and the benefits it will provide to our community.”

“We appreciate Intermountain’s long-term commitment to advancing patient care, clinical research and technology advancement in cardiovascular medicine,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO of Stereotaxis. “We look forward to continuing to support their successful and impactful robotic heart rhythm care program.”
