St. E's implants new heart device: Humility of Mary Health Partners is among the first healthcare providers in the country to implant a revolutionary new cardiac defibrillator under the skin of patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. The new device, called an S-ICD, was developed by Cameron Health / Boston Scientific and is the world's first commercially available subcutaneous implantable defibrillator. Allan L. Katz, D.O., a cardiac electrophysiologist with Humility of Mary Health Partners Physician Associates, implanted the first S-ICD in a patient at St. Elizabeth on Feb. 17. Since then, Dr. Katz and his partner, Dr. Lee Gemma, have repeated the procedure several times, implanting the S-ICD in more than six other patients. All of these procedures were completed at St. Elizabeth Health Center.
