Stereotaxis (NYSE: STXS), a pioneer and global leader in surgical robotics for minimally invasive endovascular intervention, today announced that Overland Park Regional Medical Center (OPRMC) is establishing its second robotic program for the treatment of heart rhythm disorders.

OPRMC, a part of HCA Midwest Health, first established a robotic heart rhythm care program in 2019. Since then, it has built a leading practice that applies advanced robotic technology to treat a broad range of arrhythmias, including those often considered too challenging for traditional approaches. OPRMC is now among the first in the nation to adopt the Genesis Robotic Magnetic Navigation system, the latest advance in robotic technology and will become the first hospital in the U.S. to double its capacity for robotic cardiac ablation with two Stereotaxis systems for patients receiving minimally invasive cardiac ablation procedures.

“The Kansas City Heart Rhythm Institute at OPRMC has successfully built a reputation for leadership in clinical care and healthcare research. Our robotic electrophysiology program has been an important pillar in that success,” said Dr. Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, Executive Medical Director for the Kansas City Heart Rhythm Institute. “We are excited to bring the latest robotic technology to our community.”

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.

“We are delighted to expand our partnership with Dr. Lakkireddy and Overland Park Regional Medical Center as they improve patient care, advance clinical science, and continue to grow a leading arrhythmia care program in Kansas City,” said David Fischel, Chairman and CEO of Stereotaxis.
