Diagnosis & Treatment - Heart Rhythm Center
Medication may not be enough to solve rhythm disorders.
When more advanced treatment is needed, physicians at Abington – Jefferson Health’s Heart Rhythm Center use the latest technology to diagnose problems and conduct minimally invasive procedures in our electrophysiology laboratories and operating rooms.
Heart Rhythm Diagnosis
Our experienced team gives you the fullest evaluation. Diagnostic electrophysiology studies (EPS) pinpoint the origin of disordered rhythms. Using sophisticated cardiac mapping technology, our specialists map and eliminate a tangle of nerves, called ganglia. This can cure some abnormal heart signals.
Innovative Approaches for Rhythm Conditions
We have deep experience in heart rhythm treatments. Ablation therapy seals the source of rhythm problems. Pulmonary vein isolation stops a common source of nerve overactivity. Another procedure restores rhythm and decreases stroke risk by removing the heart’s left atrial appendage.
Our specialists are highly skilled in implanting cardiac pacemakers and cardioverter defibrillators for healthy heartbeats. Heart Rhythm Center experts also replace pacemaker wires (cardiac device lead extraction) and perform Maze surgery to treat atrial fibrillation.
