Arrythmia Heart Care
The Harvard-Thorndike Electrophysiology Institute and Arrhythmia Service at BIDMC is the oldest and largest program of its kind in the region. Staff were among the pioneers of modern cardiac electrophysiology, and continue cutting-edge research. Attracting patients nationally and worldwide, with about 7,000 visits annually in the arrhythmia and pacemaker/device clinics, the service offers the most advanced diagnosis and treatment modalities, including catheter-based ablation to control or cure a variety of arrhythmias. An onsite ambulatory electrocardiography laboratory provides 24-hour surveillance for arrhythmia diagnosis and management. Physicians achieve excellent outcomes with
implantation of pacemakers, ICDs and biventricular devices. Pacemaker and ICD lead explantation are also offered. Patients benefit from education and support groups.
