The first pacemaker implantation in the Cath lab of CMC

A group of doctors who have successfully performed the first pacemaker implantation at the Curaçao Medical Center.

Curaçao Medical Center is proud to share the special news that the very first pacemaker implantation has been successfully performed in the new Cath lab of CMC. The Cath lab has advanced equipment dedicated to medical treatments for heart conditions. A Pacemaker is a device that regulates the rhythm of the heart when the frequency is not optimal due to a cardiac arrhythmia.

CMC has already performed 32 successful pacemaker implants. The difference between the previous implantations and this one, is the fact that it was the first time that the implantation was performed in the new Cath lab at CMC. A pacemaker implantation is a surgical procedure that takes about an hour and a half. After this, the patient spends the night at CMC for the necessary medical attention and treatment and can go home the next day.
CMC has 4 specific specialists for this implantation method. With these 4 specialists at their side,
patients can rest assured that they are being treated by professionals with a high level of expertise.

CMC continues striving for the highest level of care and service that patients deserve.
