Before the pacemaker implant surgery in Singapore takes place, local anaesthesia would be used.

The surgery is not open-heart surgery. The surgery will be performed within 90 minutes maximum. While the device is being implanted into the chest it would be checked by the doctor. Your stay in the hospital totally depends on your body. Usually, patients are admitted a day before the operation. They are released on the same date of the surgery. If your surgery has complexities then you'll have to wait for your doctor’s advice. If you are taking any sort of medications then your doctor will advise you what you must do.
