University of Minnesota Heart Care has been focused on curing heart rhythm disorders for patients – from the first cardiac pacemaker in the 1950s to some of the first bi-ventricular pacemakers and defibrillators in the 1990s to many of today’s state-of-the-art catheters.
The result is patients who no longer have to worry about their heart problems for the rest of their lives.
