Bradycardia care at Mayo Clinic

Mayo doctors trained in cardiovascular diseases, cardiac surgery and other areas collaborate as a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.

Doctors at Mayo Clinic provide care for you as a whole person. Doctors take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

For people with bradycardia who require surgery, when possible, surgeons use minimally invasive heart surgery, which involves the use of smaller incisions. Wireless pacing is available for people who qualify.
