Heart

Pacemaker/defibrillator clinic

The pacemaker/defibrillator clinic at Heart Center of the Rockies is designed to provide comprehensive follow-up for patients with pacemakers and implanted cardiac defibrillators. Patients are seen every three to six months in order to consistently evaluate the status of their device and to optimize its function. During each visit, clinic staff uses special equipment to check the battery, evaluate the function of the leads, and adjust pacemaker programming to ensure that the device is operating at maximum efficiency. The clinic is open to all people with existing devices who desire comprehensive maintenance and management. Patients are first seen two weeks after the device is implanted to make sure the incision is healing properly. They are then enrolled in the device clinic follow-up program.

The program is led by cardiac electrophysiologists, Dr.Timothy Johnson and Dr. Robert Kiser.

To speak to one of the Heart Center of the Rockies' device clinic staff members, call 970.221.1000.
