Lead Extraction Clinic
Baptist Lead Extraction Clinic offers minimally invasive and more effective options for the extraction of leads –– the wires attached to cardiac pacing devices that follow blood vessels into the heart muscle. The procedure involves the use of an innovative laser device that breaks up scar tissue built up around the leads, so that they can be removed safely and more easily.
If you require such services, rest easy. Our team is the most experienced in lead removal. We will provide you with excellent care in a compassionate setting. And we encourage you to ask questions and discuss with our physicians any concerns you may have.
