Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Service

Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Service

Patient Evaluation and Diagnosis:

We offer a complete spectrum of consultative and diagnostic services to provide patients and their families with a treatment plan related to heart rhythm abnormalities. These tests may include an electrocardiogram (ECG), a Holter monitor or event monitor, an exercise stress test, a tilt table test, cardiac imaging with nuclear, echo, MRI, and CT scans, or a diagnostic electrophysiologic (EP) study.

Treatment

Once a diagnosis and treatment plan has been reached, the therapeutic plan is discussed with the patient, their families, and their referring physicians. We are committed to following you longitudinally for all or your arrhythmia concerns and continued patient education.

Our experts are equipped with a full complement of therapeutic options including:

  • Electrical Cardioversion
  • Implantation of Cardiac Electrical Devices including Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy
  • Complex Ablation of supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), ventricular tachycardia (VT), and atrial fibrillation (AF)
  • Complex Lead Management and Laser Lead Extraction

Center for Heritable Arrhythmias and Sudden Death:

Our experts work with a multidisciplinary team to include pediatric cardiologists and genetic counselors to address inherited forms of heart disease that can lead to sudden cardiac death. These include but are not limited to arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C), hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), Brugada syndrome, catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT), and Long QT syndrome. A variety of diagnostic testing is available including genetic testing. Our team will work with your family to provide recommendations for screening and treatment so that you can get back to your normal daily activities as soon as possible.
