Alexian Brothers Heart & Vascular Institute features a state-of-the-art electrophysiology lab, leading-edge technology as well as board certified cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiovascular surgeons and interventional cardiologists.
An Electrophysiologist is a cardiologist who specializes in problems with the electrical system of the heart. This would include abnormal rhythms where the heart beats too slow (bradycardia), too fast (tachycardia) or irregular (such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter). We also treat patients who have poor heart function (a low ejection fraction) that could put them in danger of a lethal rhythm where they require an implantable defibrillator.
Our expert physicians can perform testing to diagnose and treat these abnormal conditions. We offer advanced invasive and non-invasive procedures including: diagnosis and treatment of cardiac rhythm disorders, catheter ablation and cutting-edge mini-maze surgery for treatment of atrial fibrillation.
