Pacemakers

A pacemaker is a small device that helps your heart beat more regularly. It does this with a small electric stimulation that helps control your heartbeat. Your doctor puts the pacemaker under the skin on your chest, just under your collarbone. It’s hooked up to your heart with tiny wires.

You may need a pacemaker to keep your heart beating properly. This helps your body get the blood and oxygen it needs. Some people just need a pacemaker for a short time (like after a heart attack) and may use a kind that’s outside the skin. The battery unit for this type can be worn on a belt.

Whatever the need, our cardiologist and support staff are able to able to perform the procedure effectively to ensure you are able to return to your normal daily routine.
