PacemakerA heart pacemaker can give you back the freedom to do the things you love
Sometimes the electrical signals that control the pumping mechanism of your heart can become disrupted in some way, and you may need to have a pacemaker fitted. A heart pacemaker is a device, usually the size of a small matchbox, that is placed in the chest.
We work with a team of Consultants who perform pacemaker implantation in our Interventional Suite at KIMS Hospital to help to correct irregular heart rhythms or rate control. We also offer a pacemaker box change procedure for anyone already fitted with a pacemaker. With no waiting lists, you can access prompt care at a time that suits you, whether you are paying for yourself or have medical insurance.
What a heart pacemaker operation involves
The first step is to have an initial consultation with a Consultant Cardiologist who specialises in device implantation. You can choose to have your appointment at KIMS Hospital or Sevenoaks Medical Centre.
The procedure itself is carried out under local anaesthetic with sedation by your Cardiologist. The wires of the pacemaker are fed through blood vessels to the heart and your Cardiologist will then implant the pacemaker under the skin, close to the left collarbone.
You can see expert consultants and have a range of scans and tests at either one of our facilities below. If you need a procedure or pacemaker surgery, this will be carried out at KIMS Hospital in Maidstone.
