Cardiac electrophysiology offers advanced treatment for atrial fibrillation (A-fib) and heart arrhythmias.
Cardiac Electrophysiology at Wellstar
A heart rhythm disorder can increase the risk of stroke, heart failure and other serious complications. Doctors at Wellstar are experts at treating arrhythmias with cardiac re-synchronization therapy and cardiac ablation (the most common treatments for arrhythmia), implantable devices such as pacemakers and other therapies.
Specialized Labs and Equipment
To ensure the highest accuracy in determining the origin of the arrhythmia, our specialized electrophysiology labs have advanced capabilities that include three-dimensional mapping systems. This also helps our specialists to decide what medicines might work best for you, and if we should do a catheter ablation.
What we treat
People with several conditions may be diagnosed and treated in the Electrophysiology Laboratory, including:
- Ventricular tachycardia
- Sudden cardiac arrest
- Atrial fibrillation
- Atrial flutter
- Heart failure requiring implanted device-based therapy
