How important is the right technology?

There was a time when the humble stethoscope was a modern marvel — a time before mammograms, MRIs, heart-lung machines or surgical robots.

Today brings unparalleled advancements in health care technology that can mean unparalleled benefits to you and your loved ones. The right technology, placed in the hands of highly skilled and caring staff, can yield some of the most successful and innovative outcomes.

Throughout Methodist Health System, our continuing investment in state-of-the-art technology enhances our ability to provide each patient an accurate diagnosis, effective treatment and smoother transition to better health. We are here, ready should you need us, with an arsenal of weapons against disease and a storehouse of high-tech tools to help you live a longer, healthier life.

One such investment is the recent ability to perform CryoAblation procedures on patients suffering from atrial fibrillation (AF), an irregular quivering or rapid heart rhytm in the upper chambers (atria) of the heart. Methodist is the only facility in the Omaha community able to perform the procedure.
