Mar 09, 2018
Cairns Private Hospital has just opened its new Cath Lab that features a laser guided-x ray and robotic arm.

It offers clinicians a new way of treating cardiac and vascular patients using minimally invasive techniques. Cairns Private Hospital has performed more than 12,000 procedures over the past 20 years including angiograms, stents, pacemakers and implanting defibrillators.
