Cardiology pioneer moves to Iceland
"It is of utmost importance to me to have a good cooperation with Icelandic doctors and the Icelandic medical system," says Professor Pedro Brugada, one of the world's most famous cardiologists who will open a surgery in Reykjavik later this year.
Brugada and his brother Joseph discovered the Brugada syndrome which can cause sudden death in young adults.
Brugada is currently on a visit to Iceland and met with Minister of Health Kristján Þór Júlíusson yesterday. He says that their conversation was very useful. "We spoke about the importance of cooperation with Icelandic cardiologists. More international doctors are expected to work for Brugada at his surgery, Klíníkin which is located in Ármúli.
