Pacemaker and Pacemaker Monitoring

A pacemaker is surgically inserted to treat a slow heartbeat. The pacemaker uses electrical impulses to stimulate the heart as needed. Patients with pacemakers require careful regular follow up to ensure a proper function. This is achieved in our office pacemaker clinics and in some cases over the phone. Office checks are recommended every six months and transtelephonic checks every two months. Information about living with a pacemaker is available at GCC.
