Pioneering Treatments for Heart Rhythm Disorders
Electrophysiology at BIDMC has long been recognized for its pioneering and innovative role in the treatment of heart rhythm disorders. The CVI's Harvard-Thorndike Electrophysiology Institute and Arrhythmia Service is the oldest, largest program of its kind in New England, providing specialized arrhythmia care for patients from around the region and around the world.
What is an Arrhythmia?
The Cardiovascular Institute's expert electrophysiologists treat patients with all types of conditions that cause abnormal heartbeats, from atrial fibrillation and arrhythmia to ventricular tachycardia.
Treatment for an irregular heartbeat may include medication, a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator, or other procedures.
