Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform, Robert Corbin, in the wake of the evaluation of a series of other medical tests, will today face the scalpel in another heart facility.
Corbin had been flown to New York after he experienced a cardiac episode in Georgetown on April 25, last. He was hospitalized at Woodlands Hospital immediately and on April 26, was transferred to the Caribbean Heart Institute in the compound of the Georgetown Public Hospital.
The following day he was medivacced to New York where he suffered another episode while being transported to the St Francis Medical facility, a hospital that specializes in heart surgeries.
This newspaper understands that Corbin was removed from that hospital after the doctors there found nothing wrong with his heart.
The surgery that Corbin is slated for today is to be performed below his heart but may be heart related. Whatever the doctors found was what caused Corbin to suffer the heart condition which his family at one stage said was heartburn. Corbin is expected to spend less than a week in hospital following the operation. The operation this newspaper learnt is a routine one and the surgeons have been described as having enough experience and adequately qualified to deal with.
Corbin has agreed to the surgery and is described to be upbeat. There have been numerous inquires about his condition and the name of the Long Island facility he is in. The name of the facility is deliberately being withheld.
Charles Corbin, the Opposition Leader’s brother, said that when Mr Corbin was at St Francis, people flocked to that hospital. He said that the same thing may happen here and they all want to avoid the crush. The party, through its General Secretary Oscar Clarke, yesterday reported that there has been a significant improvement in the health of its leader, who is receiving medical attention in Long Island, New York after he was discharged from St Francis, also in Long Island.
Corbin was initially hospitalised at the Heart Centre, St. Francis Hospital, Long Island where he underwent tests, evaluation and medical procedures, including angiography.
Charles Corbin had reported that his brother’s doctors in New York were aware of his medical condition prior to his departure and had indicated their preference to have him travel to the US for direct attention.
