Implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) are small devices that can treat potentially dangerous ventricular arrhythmias by delivering shocks to the heart through thin electrical wires (leads.)

When the device detects a dangerous rhythm, it may attempt to correct it with a shock or painless anti-tachycardia pacing.

ICDs can also wirelessly transmit critical heart rhythm data to our physicians.

We conduct extensive research on new ICD products and perform a large number of ICD implantation procedures.

Additionally, special biventricular ICDs may provide cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) which is a different type of treatment for congestive heart failure, where the left and right sides of the heart are paced simultaneously to improve heart function.
