Electrophysiology

If you have an arrhythmia – an irregular heartbeat, or a heartbeat that is too fast or too slow – electrophysiology may be part of the answer. Our specialists are board-certified in electrophysiology, which requires extensive education beyond medical school, and our electrophysiology labs have dedicated nurses and other staff members.

Arrhythmias are actually disturbances in the rhythm of the heart’s electrical system. Our electrophysiology services use the latest technology, including the CARTO System, an advanced computer mapping system that provides a picture of the heart’s electrical layout. The mapping system allows the cardiologist to find the area responsible for the arrhythmia.

In some cases, the cardiologist can treat the arrhythmia during the electrophysiology procedure through a process called ablation. Other times, electrophysiology can uncover the need for further interventions, such as a pacemaker or a defibrillator to regulate the heart’s rhythms.
