Do you have someone in the family or friends who is a cardiologist or surgeon?

I guess the real question is;where can I buy a Pacemaker in Canada,at what price?
Cardiologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

You cannot buy a pacemaker unless you have a specific DEA number which is only issued to physicians. The price will depend on the reseller since the manufacturers rarely sell them. They have reps which you'd need to contact through and the prices are determined based on volume.

I don't want to talk, I just want to know where to by a Pace-maker.Thank
Cardiologist: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 10 months ago

Again, you'd need an account rep from Biotronik which would be assigned to you after you have the right licensure and DEA certification.
