About Electrophysiology

Electrophysiology procedures involve the use of special tools and techniques to find the source of a problem with the heart’s electrical signals, or rhythm. Your plan may include medications or procedures like catheter ablation to restore the heart’s normal rhythm and help you feel better.

Benefits

Your electrophysiology treatment can help improve your cardiac rhythm abnormalities, palpitations and dizziness. You may spend less time in the hospital and can increase your physical activity. As a result, you may enjoy a better quality of life – and potentially a longer life.

Conditions Treated with Electrophysiology

We treat a wide range of heart conditions, from cardiac arrest to arrhythmia to heart failure. We’re here for you with electrophysiology to treat heart conditions that include:

Electrophysiology Treatments We Offer

Your cardiovascular team works with you to design the most effective treatment plan to fit your health needs, lifestyle and goals. If there’s a problem with your natural heart rhythm, here’s what you can expect with electrophysiology treatment.

Pacemakers

Pacemakers are used when your natural heart rhythm is not working well. These devices use electricity to help your heart beat at a regular pace. Every year, our expert electrophysiologists help nearly 10,000 patients feel better with pacemaker and cardio defibrillator implants. And most of our pacemaker patients go home the day of the procedure, so you can recover comfortably while receiving dedicated outreach from your care team.

If you need care other than a pacemaker, we also excel in the following heart treatments:

  • Ablation, including cryoablation, pulmonary vein isolation, radiofrequency catheter ablation
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy
  • Cardioversion
  • Implantable cardio defibrillator (ICD)
