Overview

Electrophysiology is a medical subspecialty that deals with the electrical impulses within the body. In cardiology, it refers to the diagnosis and treatment of rhythm problems of the heart. These may include a heart that beats too fast, too slow, or irregularly. A variety of procedures are used to diagnose these arrhythmias. Treatment may include medications, lifestyle modifications, invasive procedures such catheter ablation, electrical cardioversion and pacemaker implantation, and surgery.

Conditions

We provide world renowned expert care for the diagnosis and treatment of heart and vascular conditions and diseases.

Atrial Fibrillation (also supraventricular arrhythmia, arrhythmia aka abnormal heart rhythm).

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is the most common sustained arrhythmia. It is a serious condition where the upper chambers of the heart beat irregularly leading to…

Treatments

We’re committed to providing individualized, compassionate treatment for every patient.

Traditional Permanent Pacemaker Implantation

A traditional pacemaker is small device with two parts, a pulse generator and wires (leads), placed under the skin of your chest to help control…

Transthoracic Echocardiogram

A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is a procedure that allows your doctor to check for problems with your heart and the blood vessels near your heart.…

Temporary Transvenous Pacemaker Placement

Temporary transvenous pacemaker placement is an invasive, life-saving and emergency procedure to help manage unstable cardiac dysrrhytmias (abnormal and irregular heart beats).

Ventricular Premature Complex Ventricular Tachycardia Ablation

Ventricular premature complexes are mostly benign conditions that can cause irregular heartbeat.

Direct Current Cardioversion

Direct current cardioversion is an outpatient procedure used to restore normal heart rhythm if you have arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats).

Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical activity of your heart to diagnose common heart problems.

Implantable Cardiocerter-Defibrillator

An implantable cardiocerter-defribillator (ICD) is a small device that your doctor implants in your chest to monitor and regulate your irregular heart rhythm or arrhythmias.…

Implantable Loop Recorder Placement

An implantable loop recorder (ILR) is a small, diagnostic device that is implanted in your chest, just under the skin and during a short outpatient…

Leadless Permanent Pacemaker Implantation

A leaderless pacemaker is a small, self-contained device implanted in the right ventricle of your heart to send small electrical impulses to maintain a suitable…

Left Atrial Appendage Occlusion

If you have atrial fibrillation and you are at increased risk for a stroke, your cardiologist may recommend blood thinners.

Biventricular Pacing / Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Biventricular pacing, also known as cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT), is a treatment that uses a biventricular pacemaker to improve your heart’s rhythm and symptoms associated…

Cardiac Electrophysiology Study

A cardiac electrophysiology study (EPS) is a test used to evaluate and map your heart’s electrical system.

Cardiac Implantable Electronic Device Interrogation

A cardiac implantable electronic device interrogation is a standard practice where your cardiologist can “look into” your pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator to ensure it is…

Atrial Fibrillation Ablation

Atrial fibrillation ablation is a procedure that treats arrhythmia that begins in the heart’s upper chamber (the atria).
