AICD Cost in India starts from US $14,000 and varies depending on the type of Implant, your medical condition and history, comorbidity-if any, surgeon, facility and the city where you choose to get the procedure done.
A significant portion of the overall cost of an AICD implantation arises from the type of implant used. There are different types of implants available which include Single chamber, dual chamber, biventricular and subcutaneous implant. The doctor shall recommend the appropriate implant depending on your medical condition and requirement. IndiCure recommends you to explore the options by consulting our expert Interventional Cardiologists.
An important expense when it comes to your AICD implantation is going to be your Cardiologist's fees. IndiCure recommends only experienced, skilled, board-certified surgeons who are capable of delivering successful cardiac procedures. Although the charges may vary depending on the experience of the surgeon, you can be completely assured of being in safe and experienced hands when you choose heart surgery in India with IndiCure.
Having your AICD procedure in an accredited surgical facility by skilled and qualified medical staff is a critical factor. Moreover, the geographical location of this facility also affects the quote. But, IndiCure provides you with a projected estimate that will be all inclusive and affordable.
The surgery-related expenses include the pre- and post-surgical expenses.

The automatic implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (AICD) is a device designed to monitor the heartbeat. This device can deliver an electrical impulse or shock to the heart when it senses a life-threatening change in the heart's rhythm. Like a pacemaker, the AICD is small enough to be implanted under the skin in the upper chest.
The AICD system consists of :
Your doctor can also program the AICD to deliver a variety of sophisticated electrical therapies depending on the type of abnormal rhythm problem being treated.
The indications for an AICD are :
AICDs are classified as :
An intravenous (IV) line will be started in your arm. Your doctor will inject a local anesthetic to numb the site where the device will be placed. Typically AICDs are implanted just under the collarbone, usually on the left side.
Your doctor will make a small incision in the skin. From there, lead wires are passed through a vein to your heart and then tested to check their position in your heart.
A little pocket is made under the skin for the pulse generator. It is about the size of a book of matches. The leads are connected to the pulse generator, and tested. Then your doctor will close the incision and program the device.
Recovery after AICD implantation is rapid, but arm movement and activity restrictions are advised for the first few weeks. The hospital stay is short, a day or two after the surgery. Routine activities can be resumed in about two weeks.
An AICD is designed to treat dangerously fast heart rates. It continuously monitors your heart and restores your heart to its normal heart rate. It's like having an emergency response team with you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We at IndiCure completely understand your concerns and it is always our endeavor to provide the best outcome for every patient. Following is the list of questions you must ask before you embark on your journey for AICD implantation in India.

I recently traveled to Mumbai for a lower body lift and breast lift. As an American nurse living in Saudi Arabia I was apprehensive at first and did months of research. I chose IndiCure because of Dr. Jagannathan. I traveled alone and spent almost 3 weeks there undergoing 2 separate procedures. I was pleasantly surprised. The surgeries both went flawless. All of the hospital staff was amazing. Read Michelle Williams's Review About IndiCure Here
