Pacemaker implantation

Get your heart back into rhythm

If you have a slow heartbeat due to age or heart damage, you might suffer from symptoms like fatigue, fainting and shortness of breath. These symptoms can take a huge toll on your quality of life; however, a tiny device called a pacemaker can help eliminate these symptoms and give you the chance to lead an independent, healthy life.

At Novant Health, our goal is to help you feel better and stay well. If you suffer from a slow heartbeat, you may be a candidate for a pacemaker.

Our team of experts will work with you to review your medical history and current symptoms. If it is determined that a pacemaker is an appropriate treatment, a device will be implanted under your skin. It will use pain-free, electrical pulses to regulate your heartbeat and help relieve your symptoms.
