We performed more than 300 electrophysiology procedures,
including procedures to treat atrial fibrillation and
ventricular tachycardia, in 2010.
Our center implanted more than 600 devices, including
biventricular pacemakers and implantable
cardioverter-defibrillator (ICDs), in 2010.
We offer sophisticated ablation treatments for people who have
atrial fibrillation that hasn’t responded to medical management.
We also use ablation to treat atrioventricular (AV) nodal
dysfunction, atrial tachycardia, accessory pathways, ventricular
tachycardia and atrial flutter.
