The Magellan™ Robotic System

John Matsuura, M.D., chief of the Wright State Physicians Division of Vascular Surgery, uses the Magellan™ Robotic System for endovascular procedures. This new technology is FDA-approved for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease, a disease in the legs caused by fatty buildups in the inner walls of arteries. Miami Valley Hospital is the first hospital in the Midwest to acquire the Magellan Robotic System. More information is available on the Miami Valley Hospital website.

The Magellan™ robot is a revolutionary technology that allows Premier Health to care for more patients and offer new services for those in need of endovascular procedures. It can be used for a wide variety of therapeutic vascular treatments involving coronary disease and specialized procedures for both men and women.

The Robotic System helps physicians navigate the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain. Using the robotic arm, your physician can precisely steer a catheter through complex anatomy to open a blocked artery during a percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), atherectomy or stent placement.

Dr. Matsuura discussed the Magellan Robotic System in a video and article posted on the Dayton Daily News website. (A subscription is required to read the article.)
