Heart rhythm disorders (abnormally slow, irregular or fast heartbeats) affect all ages and range from benign to life-threatening conditions. Our expert team relies on a foundation of empathetic patient care to diagnose and treat these conditions. Our dedication to research complements excellent patient care as we discover new tools to predict life-threatening arrhythmias or technologic advancements to provide safety to our procedures. The program's clinicians and researchers work closely with each other to tailor care to the patient's needs for a better quality of life and longevity.
