Electrophysiology and Device Clinic
Our cardiology department offers a unique specialty called electrophysiology. An electrophysiologist is a specially trained cardiologist who sees and treats patients with heart rhythm problems.
Heart rhythm problems occur because of a malfunction in the electrical system of the heart and can occur in people of all ages. Some of the symptoms that may indicate a heart rhythm problem include shortness of breath, fatigue, dizziness or fainting.
Electrophysiology: diagnosis, treatment and follow up
The doctor will use one of the diagnostic services to determine the best course of action for that patient. A treatment plan is created after a reviewing test results and after a discussion between the electrophysiologist, the patient and family.
Treatment options include:
- Medication management
- Non-surgical procedures
- Medical devices, such as pacemakers and defibrillators
- Surgical options
