Electrophysiology is the study of the heart’s electrical system—a cardiac specialty that provides crucial services to people with abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia).
At the Cape Cod Healthcare Heart & Vascular Institute, you have access to highly skilled cardiologists who specialize in electrophysiology (EP) and are specially trained in the latest EP advances for diagnosing and treating heart arrhythmia.
Advanced Care for Heart Arrhythmia
When your heart beats too fast, too slowly or irregularly, you need specialized cardiac care. The electrophysiologists at CCHC work closely with our cardiac surgeons and other members of the cardiac team to determine the best treatment for your specific condition.
Treatments used to diagnose and correct arrhythmia include:
Other procedures that may be used alone or in combination with these treatments include:
Cardiac Ablation for Arrhythmia
Ablation is a minimally invasive catheter-based procedure used in cardiology to disable abnormal heart tissue that causes arrhythmias.
Electrophysiologists use two different types of ablation, depending on the type of arrhythmia and where the heart current is misfiring:
Our physicians are trained in balloon cryoablation, a new method of treating atrial fibrillation, the most common form of heart arrhythmia.
