Electrophysiology is the study and treatment of arrhythmias. Arrhythmias, also known as heart rhythm disorders, occur when there is a change in the normal rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. They are generally caused by abnormalities in the heart's electrical system. Arrhythmias can be complex medical conditions with effects ranging from annoying to life threatening.

The electrophysiologists on the medical staff at The Heart Hospital Baylor are skilled at diagnosing, treating, and managing arrhythmia and related disorders. The Heart Hospital Baylor is a patient-focused, high volume center where you can receive care from some of the most experienced specialists in the DFW Metroplex. The specialists on our medical staff are highly trained in treating the full range of cardiac arrhythmias, including:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Atrial flutter
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Pacemaker / ICD malfunction
  • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
  • Rhythm disorders related to heart failure
  • Premature atrial contraction
  • Sick sinus syndrome
  • Sinus tachycardia
  • Sinus bradycardia
  • Sudden cardiac death prevention
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia

Advanced technology meets compassionate, five-star care at The Heart Hospital Baylor.
