    A subspecialty of cardiology, electrophysiology focuses on the study and treatment of the electrical activity of your heart to identify abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Some treatments for arrythmias include implanting pacemakers and cardioverter-defibrillators.

    If you have not been diagnosed with an abnormal or irregular heart rhythm, please make an appointment with our general cardiologists, and, if needed, they can refer you for the appropriate specialized treatment.
