One of the first Australian implants
Today MonashHeart cardiac rhythm management consultant Dr Stewart Healy (left), seen here with cardiac rhythm management fellow Dr Alan Robertson, implanted one of Australia’s first cardiac contractility modulation (CCM) devices. CCM therapy is a new device based treatment for heart failure when there are few other options to improve heart function. It strengthens the patients own heart by delivering specially timed electrical impulses. We are proud our team are one of the first in Australia to offer this new technology to our sickest patients.
