The particular treatment that is best for you depends on the arrhythmia and how serious it is. In fact, some arrhythmias do not require any treatment. Treatment options include medications, lifestyle changes, catheter ablations, implantable devices and surgery.

  • Cardiac EP Imaging

    Our EP imaging labs offer the most advanced technology, dedicated to improving accuracy and safety.

  • Implantable Devices

    Implantable devices, such as pacemakers, can be used to treat severe arrhythmias.

  • MICRA Transcatheter Pacing System

    The Micra™ transcatheter pacing system (TPS) is the world’s smallest pacemaker to help treat patients with bradycardia.
