"My Pacemaker op"

About: Ninewells Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I had my pacemaker replaced in April 2012 by Dr Koch at Ninewells Hospital Dundee.

The experience and the treatment provided was exceptiona. The surgeon explained every step of the way. I needed to get home that night as looking after terminally ill husband. Dr Koch made that possible, have had pacemakers since 1986 was certainly the best operation I have had.

When I go for pacemaker check ups always seen straight away and always have everything explained to me service second to none.
