Electrophysiology

Our electrophysiology team provides comprehensive care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias using the latest diagnostic and cutting-edge therapeutic tools.

Overview

Our cardiac electrophysiology physicians and staff are trained and experienced in treating patients with heart rhythm problems including:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Pacemakers
  • Defibrillators
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy
  • Bradycardia (slow heart rate)
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome

About our program

Our highly experienced team specializes in cardiac electrophysiology, which is the diagnosis and treatment of heart-rhythm abnormalities, or arrhythmias. We diagnose and treat patients with complex arrhythmias and structural heart disease at Yale New Haven Health System throughout Connecticut. 

We treat a variety of common and rare arrhythmia problems, from palpitations and syncope to ventricular tachycardia and Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome. We take pride in our high volume of cardiac devices including pacemakers, defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy. We also focus on lead management and device extraction whereby we use specialized equipment and techniques to remove implanted cardiac device systems. 

At Yale New Haven Hospital, we offer a comprehensive ablation program specializing in both atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia ablations, among others. We are among a highly select group of physicians in the US who specialize in providing ablation therapy with minimal use of radiation in order protect you from harmful X-ray energy. In many cases, we can cure arrhythmias with ablation, while in other cases we aim to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. We provide highly specialized care for specific populations including women, athletes, and young individuals with inherited genetic arrhythmias. We offer a comprehensive Falls/Syncope program in collaboration with the Dorothy Adler Geriatric Assessment Center. Our goal is to provide treatment for patients who are predisposed to falling or losing consciousness (syncope). 

We are committed to research and teaching within the Yale School of Medicine and the Yale New Haven Health system. Specifically, we offer enrollment in clinical trials to offer patients advanced options that they may not have access to at other arrhythmia centers. Yale electrophysiology research spans the entire spectrum from molecular to population science. We are interested in the basic mechanisms of arrhythmogenesis and the interplay between metabolism, electrical and structural remodeling. Clinically, we offer cutting edge device trials for patients with arrhythmias using leadless technology. We are renowned for our research on device remote monitoring. We are particularly interested in stroke reduction in atrial fibrillation and lead national registries for left atrial appendage occlusion and atrial fibrillation ablation. We also offer national expertise in arrhythmia management in athletes, and the physiologic links between psychological stress and arrhythmogenesis.
