It’s our personal experiences that often shape and change the direction of our lives. Losing his father to sudden cardiac arrest played a major role in Desai Aseem D MD’s decision to become an EP, he says, as was the immediate benefit he knew he could provide to patients. Incorporating Stereotaxis technology into his practice at Mission Hospital in Mission Viejo, CA in 2012, he’s been able to fulfill that promise with even his most difficult cases.
“I had a patient near death in a hospital bed due to a sustained VT. The critical isthmus was located in an area of the left ventricle difficult to access with a manual catheter. It only took a single burn to terminate the VT and a day after his Stereotaxis procedure he was standing at the sink brushing his teeth,” says Dr. Desai. “With robotic cardiac ablation, I have a safer approach to patient care, with greater accuracy than the human hand.”
Thanks Dr. Desai and Mission Heritage Heart Rhythm Specialists for making a difference in the lives of your patients!
