Arrhythmia and heart rhythm care services

Electrophysiology is the study and treatment of arrhythmias. Arrhythmias, also known as heart rhythm disorders, occur when there is a change in the normal rate or rhythm of the heartbeat, typically caused by an abnormality in the heart's electrical system. Arrhythmias can be complex medical conditions with effects ranging from annoying to life-threatening.

Cardiac arrhythmia treatment in our heart rhythm center in Plano

Our team collaborates with you and your physician to develop an appropriate heart rhythm disorder treatment. Although some heart arrhythmias can be managed by medication, others may require surgery, including the implantation of a ventricular assist device (VAD).

When an electrophysiology procedure is required, our team performs surgery at our heart specialty hospital, Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano. Together, we find solutions to the following conditions in our heart rhythm center:

  • Atrial fibrillation (AFib)
  • Atrial flutter
  • Atrioventricular block (also known as heart block)
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
  • Rhythm disorders related to heart failure
  • Premature atrial contraction
  • Sick sinus syndrome
  • Sinus tachycardia
  • Sinus bradycardia
  • Sudden cardiac death prevention (cardiac arrest care)
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia
