Dr. Paul Campbell performs the 1,000th Robotic Procedure at Atrium Health Cabarrus
In May of 2014, the Cabarrus Healthcare Foundation hosted a ribbon cutting for the Corindus CorPath 200 Cardiac Catheterization Robotic System. This system was purchased by Cabarrus Healthcare Foundation through a grant from The Cannon Foundation. It was announced in Spring 2023, Dr. Paul Campbell, an interventional cardiologist with Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute – Cabarrus performed the 1,000th procedure utilizing this state-of-the-art equipment. Atrium Health Cabarrus is the only hospital in the greater Charlotte region to offer this type of intervention. Congratulations Dr. Campbell and the Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute – Cabarrus on this milestone.
Previously, physicians could receive too much radiation from preforming the interventional procedure. With the Corindus, they can place guide wires and stents inside the patient’s heart from the safety of a radiation-protected “interventional cockpit” adjacent to the patient. Joysticks are used inside the cockpit for the physician to maneuver through the cases with greater precision than ever before, which provides greater results for the patient with less need for additional procedures.
“This equipment is a wonderful advancement and investment for cardiac care in our community. We are so excited to have this technology at Atrium Health Cabarrus!” Amanda Thompson, AVP Patient Care Services
