Sanford Health has received a $2.4 million grant to purchase two robotic-assisted catheterization systems to aid in placing stents and balloons in patients with coronary artery disease.  South Dakota is one of five locations to receive the device.  Dr. Tom Stys talked about the new procedure which Sanford will begin using later this month.
