Stereotaxis Ablation at the Clinical Robotics Laboratory

Robotic Surgery - StereotaxisOHSU is the only hospital in Oregon to offer stereotaxis ablation — a revolutionary magnetic navigation provided by OHSU’s Clinical Robotics Laboratory that decreases radiation exposure to patients and makes cardiac interventional treatment more effective.

The Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation gives cardiologists exceptional control in pacemaker placement and lets them perform consistent micro-movements, significantly enhancing the precision with which electrical mapping is performed and therapeutic ablation is delivered. 

Stereotaxis is particularly well-suited for the diagnosis and treatment of both common and complex arrhythmias, as successful treatment requires precise catheter positioning, often in hard to reach regions of the heart, which can be more consistently achieved using computerized, magnetic navigation.
