Pacemaker Banner


A pacemaker is implanted surgically to regulate the heart beat.  More than half a million Americans have a pacemaker.

A pacemaker can be used to treat many abnormal heart rhythms.  Pacemakers can be adapted to your body needs from moment to moment, beating faster during exercise and slowing down at rest.

Pacemaker insertion procedures are simple and sate.  Complications are rare.   You can return to your regular activities shortly after the procedure.
