​Conditions we treat:​

Arrhythmias, also known as heart rhythm disorders, occur when there is a change in the normal rat​e or rhythm of the heartbeat. They are generally caused by abnormalities in the heart's electrical system.

Cardiac arrhythmias can be complex medical conditions with effects ranging from annoying to life-threatening.
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Atrial flutter
  • Atrioventricular block (also known as heart block)
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Pacemaker/ICD malfunction
  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
  • Rhythm disorders related to heart failure
  • Premature atrial contraction
  • Sick sinus syndrome
  • Sinus tachycardia
  • Sinus bradycardia
  • Sudden cardiac death prevention
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia​​​

Advanced electrophysiology facilities

With two electrophysiology labs, the specialists on our medical staff are able to tackle complex arrhythmia cases.

We can consult with surgeons when the combined expertise of an electrophysiologist and surgeon is required. Our innovative labs feature advanced technological innovations that help the experts here provide patients quality care.

​​Diagnostic and treatment services:​

Although some arrhythmias can be managed by medication, others may require surgery. The electrophysiologists on the medical staff at The Heart Hospital are experts at both traditional open surgeries and minimally invasive procedures.

Minimally invasive surgeries use small incisions and precisely directed catheter-based tools to treat heart rhythm disorders. Guests usually benefit from these less-invasive procedures through shorter recovery time, smaller incisions and better outcomes.
  • Atrial fibrillation management​
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy
  • Diagnostic heart monitoring
    • Holter monitor
    • Event monitoring
    • Remote mobile cardiac outpatient telemetry monitoring
  • Electrophysiology study
  • Lead management and extraction
  • Maze procedure
  • Pacemaker and bi-ventricular pacemaker implantation​
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Sudden cardiac death assessment and evaluation
  • Supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) ablation
  • Syncope evaluation and management, including tilt table testing
  • Ventricular fibrillation and tachycardia management and ablation​​​
  • Zero-fluoroscopy ablation​​

Preparing for tomorrow

The specialists on our medical staff are training a new generation of physicians and teaching long-practicing physicians from around the globe the approaches and techniques for treating heart rhythm disorders.

In addition, the specialists here participate in various trials, including an atrial fibrillation study that compares medication to ablation to assess the risks and benefits.
