La PORTE – The world’s tiniest pacemaker, about the size of a large vitamin, has been successfully implanted into the heart of a retired Michigan City priest in the first procedure of its kind in the area.

Bob Gehring couldn’t be happier with the device, feels better than he did before and can’t recall any pain from the procedure, he said in a statement from La Porte Hospital.
