No, no, no, NO! Never. Implanting a pacemaker or changing one out is a
serious operation. It usually works okay, but no ethical doctor would want
to do it just for the money. Cardiologists do not like to kill or disable
patients. This is like suggesting that a doctor would deliberately infect
someone to extend a hospital stay, or cause a difficult birth that required
a Cesarean.

(No doubt there are a few criminally unethical doctors who do things like
that.)
