The Electrophysiology Center Offers the Latest Individualized Treatment Options for Cardiac Arrhythmias
The state-of-the-art Electrophysiology Center, part of University Hospitals Harrington Heart & Vascular Institute, is a leading provider of diagnostic and individualized treatment options for cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (AF), a leading cause of stroke worldwide.
Our center is located at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, and has services available at several other University Hospitals locations across northeast Ohio. The Electrophysiology Center is one of the first such specialized medical facilities in the U.S., providing state-of-the-art medical and ablative therapies.
Extensive Background and Expertise
For more than two decades, our highly qualified, board-certified physicians have been directly involved with developing and using catheter ablation therapies with tremendous success. Additionally, our experts are highly skilled in using the very latest medical and technological advances, including:
- 3-D mapping systems
- Cardiac computed tomography (CT) scans
- Intracardiac echocardiography
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
- Stereotactic magnetic navigation
Leading-Edge Diagnostics and Treatments
As leaders in diagnostics and treatment of cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure, our skilled team provides implantable device therapy – using pacemakers or cardioverter defibrillators – as well as the latest in cardiac resynchronization therapy. In addition, we use the latest treatment advancements, including:
Center for Cardiovascular Genetics
The Electrophysiology Center also offers cardiovascular genetics services, a collaborative approach between adult and pediatric electrophysiologists, a geneticist and a genetic counselor. The center offers clinical screening, genetic testing, and treatment for inherited arrhythmia syndromes such as long QT, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy(ARVD/C), and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CCPVT).
Our experts focus on leading-edge scientific research and ongoing clinical trials, moving quickly from the research stage to patient care. At this time, our electrophysiology clinical trials involve innovative treatments for patients with cardiac arrhythmias and heart failure.
Convenient Clinics Across Northeast Ohio
In addition to our clinic at UH Cleveland Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio, we offer convenient University Hospitals clinics across northeast Ohio that are staffed by cardiac device nurses and nurse practitioners. These specially trained nurses offer routine patient follow-ups whether in person, by telephone or via online services.
