Our team of specialized electrophysiologists (EPs) uses the most advanced technology to detect, diagnose and treat arrhythmias and other heart rhythm issues. They specialize in a variety of minimally-invasive procedures including implantable devices like pacemakers, radiofrequency cardiac ablation, cryoablation and the Watchman – a device that closes off the left atrial appendage and reduces a patient’s risk for stroke.
