What We Do

Pacemaker implants involve the insertion of a small compute- like device and lead system (1 or 2 leads) that responds to and treats slow heart rhythms. The pacemaker is implanted under the skin in the upper chest and the lead is threaded into the heart via a vein. 

A pacemaker implant is done under anesthesia and monitoring.  Same day or overnight admission is required.
