Treating specific heart problems with stereotaxis

Luna Bhatta, MDSome rapid heart rhythms require treatment that involves snaking a tube into the heart.

Luna Bhatta, MD, director of the clinical cardiac electrophysiology lab and the arrhythmia service at Upstate University Hospital, explains how stereotaxis works.
