Lead Extraction Program

If you have a pacemaker or implanted defibrillator, your physician will check on it regularly to make sure that the device is working well. Your doctor will also check the leads, which are thin wires, coated with insulation, that connect the implantable device to your heart. If there are any issues with the leads connected to your device, they may need to be removed.

To properly and safely remove leads, a special extraction procedure is performed by an electrophysiologist. At HackensackUMC's Electrophysiology Center, our electrophysiologists have the training and experience to perform this procedure safely and effectively.
