Treatments & Device Therapy

The Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology at UI Health offers the full spectrum of device therapy including conventional pacemakers, biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators (ICDs). A dedicated outpatient clinic staffed with experienced nurses and cardiac electrophysiologists oversees the care of the pacemaker and ICD patient.

Remote Device Clinic
In addition, we offer our patients a dedicated remote device clinic. With current devices embedding advanced technology patients can wirelessly (remotely) transfer pacemaker or ICD data to our clinic without the need for an in-clinic visit.  

Lead Extraction Program
Some patients may require removal of previously implanted pacemaker or ICD leads. Lead removal (extraction) is performed by a team of cardiac electrophysiologists and surgeons who possess the special expertise and experience in such procedures.
