Electrophysiology

Ascension’s comprehensive cardiac electrophysiology program offers leading-edge treatments for heart rhythm disorders.

About Electrophysiology

Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) occur when your heart beats too slowly, too quickly or irregularly. If you have an arrhythmia, you may experience heart palpitations, fainting, dizziness or shortness of breath. Atrial fibrillation (AFib), the most common arrhythmia type, causes one-fourth of all strokes.

Ascension’s board-certified electrophysiologists specialize in treatment of the heart’s electrical system. They diagnose patients at risk for cardiac events, care for patients with pacemakers or defibrillators, and perform minimally invasive procedures to treat and cure arrhythmias.

Our customized care plans aim to help correct electrical conduction issues through treatments such as medication therapies, mechanical-assist devices and minimally invasive surgical interventions. We can also offer new treatment options through ongoing research trials.

At every stage of your treatment, we work closely with you and your family to help reduce the risk for further heart-rhythm disorders. At Ascension, you can expect personalized, compassionate care from our electrophysiology team.
