Electrophysiology / Arrhythmia

Cardiac electrophysiology is the study and treatment of abnormal electrical heart rhythms (arrhythmia).

The Electrophysiology / Arrhythmia service at MHVI delivers the latest in diagnostic evaluations and therapeutic offerings for heart rhythm management. These include pacemaker and defibrillator implantation, devices to treat congestive heart failure, tilt table studies, electrophysiology studies, and catheter ablation for arrhythmias.

MHVI offers an excellent cardiac rhythm device program for patients with primary arrhythmia, genetic disorders, and congestive heart failure, who require or benefit from ongoing device therapy. We are engaged in clinical research trials to deliver new cutting edge therapies for our patients.  We offer state-of-the-art treatments like left atrial appendage occlusion (Watchman) devices, leadless pacemakers, subcutaneous defibrillators, and cryoablation for atrial fibrillation ablation. We have an active catheter ablation program to treat heart rhythm conditions such as atrial fibrillation and flutter, supraventricular tachycardias, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, ventricular tachycardia, and other complex arrhythmias that may sometimes be difficult to treat with conventional medical therapies.

Patients today are part of a healthcare system that is evolving rapidly and is in the midst of a remarkable technological expansion in cardiovascular diagnostics and therapeutics.  This is especially true in the field of electrophysiology and heart rhythm management. Our arrhythmia specialists at MHVI help patients and their families to understand their rhythm issues and assist them in sorting out the multitude of therapeutic modalities available to them, which include pharmacologic, device, catheter-ablation, and surgical therapies. At MHVI we provide state-of-the-art, patient-centered care that is delivered with quality, proximity, and personal attention.  This means that patients treated with a biventricular defibrillator for advanced congestive heart failure or complex catheter ablation for atrial fibrillation can receive their pre-procedure care and post-procedure follow up close to their home, by providers who know them well. Patients and their families who choose MHVI expect and receive not just clinical expertise, but continuity and familiarity from their heart rhythm providers and proceduralists.
