New surgery in Santa Rosa for heart patients
Santa Rosa Press Democrat

It took only moments for Dr. Peter Chang-Sing to insert the world’s smallest wireless heart monitor just under the skin and to the left of 83-year-old Eric Leber’s sternum.

When the outpatient operation was over, Chang-Sing said, “Shall we get started then?”

He was, of course, joking. The procedure, performed with local anesthesia Thursday morning at the Advanced Surgery Institute in Santa Rosa, took less than three minutes.
