Heart Rhythm Disorder Diagnosis and Treatment
Our University physicians have the training, expertise and technology to provide the highest quality care for the full spectrum of heart rhythm conditions:
Some heart rhythm disorders can be easily treated with medications. Others may require the implantation of a pacemaker or defibrillator. Some patients benefit from cardiac ablation, a catheter-based procedure that destroys the tissue causing the irregular heartbeat – avoiding the need for open heart surgery. Our providers strive to help patients understand and evaluate appropriate treatments.
The Heart Rhythm Program offers leading treatments, including:
- Inpatient and outpatient arrhythmia care
- Eletrophysiologic studies
- Ambulatory heart monitoring
- Complex catheter ablation
- Implantation of pacemakers, defibrillators, biventricular resynchronization devices and physiologic (direct His-bundle) pacing devices
