Pacemaker Implantation (Leadless)

Overview

A leadless pacemaker is used to treat patients experiencing irregular or slow heartbeat (bradycardia). Like other pacemakers, the leadless pacemaker sends electrical impulses to restore the heart’s rhythm and increase the heart rate. We offer the Medtronic Micra® Transcatheter Pacing System (TPS).

  • Cosmetically invisible after the implantation
  • Less than 1/10th the size of traditional pacemakers
  • About the same size as a large vitamin
  • No wires required
  • Approved for full body MRI scans
  • 12-year battery life
  • FDA approved device
  • About the procedure:

Minimally-invasive

  • Delivered directly to the heart through a vein in the leg
  • No surgical incision or pocket required under the skin
