Pacemaker insertion and replacement services are essential for patients with irregular heart rhythms. During the procedure, a device to regulate the heartbeat is placed in the chest. This device sends electrical impulses.
The procedure, performed under local anesthesia, is simple and most patients can return to their previous lives within weeks. The lifespan of a pacemaker is usually around ten years. This may vary from model to model. Regular check-ups at the hospital will positively affect the performance of the pacemaker. However, in case of complications, the pacemaker needs to be replaced.As Ekol International Hospitals, we are an Izmir-based health group in Western Turkey.
