Dr. John Swartz, Freeman Heart & Vascular Institute cardiologist, is the first and only physician in southwest Missouri to use the Medtronic Micra™ Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS). It is the first and only leadless pacemaker in the United States as a treatment option for patients with bradycardia (slow or irregular heart rhythm). The Micra TPS is about the size of a multivitamin, making it 93 percent smaller than traditional devices and the world’s smallest pacemaker.
