Pacemakers

When the heartbeat is too slow because the heart's natural pacemaker or its wiring system is not functioning properly, implantation of a permanent pacemaker is necessary. The pacemaker – a small device implanted under the skin in the chest – is used to ensure that the heart beats at a normal and appropriate rate.

Treatment Option

Pacemakers

At NewYork-Presbyterian, our experts in the treatment of arrhythmias use the latest advancements in pacemaker technology, including single-chamber or dual-chamber pacemakers, alone or combined with implantable cardioverter defibrillators and biventricular devices to treat cardiac arrhythmias. Our staff can monitor implanted pacemakers periodically by telephone to a patient at home to evaluate routine functional status and to ensure normal battery function.
