Cardiac devices are implanted into the heart to monitor and manage heart issues. These tiny devices can help do the work of your heart's natural processes like maintaining a normal rhythm or pumping blood to the rest of the body. We provide state of the art devices as a minimally invasive option for heart care. Including but not limited to:
Heart Rhythm Devices
Pacemakers and ICDs monitor and adjust the heart rhythm and help the heart work correctly. If you have an irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) like afib, rapid, irregular electrical impulses cause the heart to beat inefficiently, increasing the risk for heart attack and stroke. We offer:
- Implanted Cardiac Defibrillators (ICDs) - devices that constantly monitor and shock the heart back in to a regular rhythm as needed
- Subcutaneous Implanted Cardiac Defibrillators (S-ICD) - less invasive devices that monitor and regulate heart rhythm
- Pacemakers - devices that send electrical signals to the heart to restore a regular rhythm
- Laser Lead Wire Extraction/Replacement - procedure to maintenance devices in the case of infection or malfunction
Heart Failure Devices
Other devices can be used to manage heart failure by monitoring artery pressure or helping the heart muscle pump blood to the rest of the body. We offer:
- Ventricular Assist Devices (VADs) - mechanical pumps that help the weakened heart chamber
- CardioMEMS™ - devices that wirelessly monitors artery pressure in heart failure patients
