Baptist Jacksonville is Florida’s First to Implant World’s Smallest, Wireless Pacemaker
Date:8/25/2014

pacemaker is a very revolutionary idea,” Dr. Sagi said. “There are no incisions anywhere in the chest and the patient is walking in eight hours.”

The procedure involves a small hole in the groin area as opposed to the traditional pacemaker which requires an incision under the skin on the chest and wires being inserted through the arm vein.

“It’s a completely different way of doing this procedure and one that can have positive implications down the line for other types of heart devices we implant,” Dr. Lee said. “With this pacemaker being placed directly into the heart, there is minimal risk of any kind of infection.”

David Bussey, 81, of Jacksonville, Dr. Sagi’s patient, was the first patient at Baptist Medical Center for the new pacemaker. Bussey had issues with his heart temporarily stopping in the past and he would pass out. Since the pacemaker, he’s back to gardening and other work around the house.

“He’s doing much better. I’m not scared anymore that he’s going to quit breathing on me,” his wife, Laura Bussey said. “It is just unbelievable how this pacemaker can help people.”

Dr. Sagi said Bussey’s heart still works on its own but if Bussey has a problem, the pacemaker “automatically kicks in and keeps his heart from slowing down.”
