Dr. Carlos Brockmann, Heart Surgeon

Dr. Carlos Brockmann was instrumental in the early establishment of the Solidarity Bridge Heart Program, and remains one of its key partners. Dr. Brockmann first introduced Solidarity Bridge to the Clínica Belga hospital in Cochabamba in the early 2000s, and performed our first pacemaker implants there soon after. Dr. Brockmann is currently our primary partner for open heart surgeries, performing on average one pediatric heart surgery per month through our program, primarily to correct congenital heart defects.
