Providers at the Wayne Health Cardiac Device Clinic partner with patients in need of cardiac device care. The Wayne Health Cardiac Device Clinic offers comprehensive evaluation and device management services for patients with implanted cardiac devices, such as pacemakers, internal cardiac defibrillators, biventricular pacemakers/ ICDs or Holter monitors, or external devices, such as implantable loop recorders.
Our team of board-certified cardiologists and heart specialists, together with electrophysiologists, registered nurses and cardiac technicians, provides a collaborative approach to proper device management, ensuring optimal follow-up for patients. Wayne Health physicians and providers work closely with referring physicians to customize the treatment and settings of each individual patient’s cardiac device.
The frequency of a patient’s evaluation is based on the cardiologist’s recommendation. A typical patient will have both clinical visits and remote monitoring.
Wayne Health physicians and researchers are also teaching and research faculty at Wayne State University School of Medicine who conduct basic, translational and clinical research. This makes the latest treatments and clinical trials available to you sooner than other providers without a medical school affiliation.
