Electrophysiology

Patients experiencing palpitations, fluttering or racing heartbeats may benefit from Genesis Electrophysiology services. Arrhythmias can sometimes occur in a healthy heart and be of minimal consequence, but they can sometimes indicate a serious problem that can lead to heart disease, stroke or sudden death. Cardiac electrophysiology is the diagnosis and treatment of those abnormal heart rate and rhythms. 

Conditions we treat

The most common type of arrhythmia is atrial fibrillation (A-Fib) and is the result of the top portion or atria of you heart beating out of rhythm. An electrophysiology (EP) study is used to diagnosis the type and severity of arrhythmias.

We treat a variety of conditions for heart patients including:

  • Arrhythmias
  • Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
  • Bradycardia
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Sudden cardiac arrest
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Tachycardia
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome

Treatment can involve many different therapies from medications, to devices to control your heart beat, to catheter based procedures called ablations. Genesis treatments, procedures and device implantations include:

  • Biventricular devices
  • Cardiac device monitoring
  • Catheter ablation for Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
  • Catheter ablation for fast heart rate (Tachycardia)
  • Defibrillators
  • Device implants
  • Electrical cardioversion for fast heart rate (Fibrillation)
  • Electrical cardioversion for Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib)
  • Implantable Cardiac Defibrillator (ICD)
