The 61-year-old former vice president complained of symptoms of a slow heart rate.
Former Vice President Mike Pence underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker after developing “symptoms associated with a slowing heart rate,” his representatives said.
The planned operation was carried out on Wednesday and was successful.
The 61-year-old former vice president is expected to “make a full recovery and return to normal activities in the coming days.”
The statement said Pence had complained of slow-motion symptoms for the past two weeks and had consulted with his doctors at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia, before undergoing the procedure.
