In brief: Office and hospital
Initial postimplantation care centers on wound healing.
Subsequent followup relates to monitoring the function of the device. Regular office visits are required to assure that the device is functioning normally. As the devices can be life saving, close attention is paid to battery life so that the device can be replaced before the battery fails.
