Brigham and Women's Heart & Vascular Center is known worldwide for its expertise in evaluating and treating abnormal heart rhythms, or arrhythmias. We have long been innovators in the field, from being the first to use direct current cardioversion to restore normal heart rhythm in 1962 to being one of only three centers in the U.S. today to use needle catheter ablations to reach within the thickness of the heart wall and unique stereotactic radio ablation protocol to treat arrhythmias.
Our team in the Cardiac Arrhythmia Service includes some of the world's most experienced physicians in cardiac electrophysiology, who specialize in treating a full range of patients, including those with the most complex medical concerns. Our specially-trained team performs more than 3,000 procedures annually, including catheter ablation, implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD), pacemaker implantation and cardiac resynchronization, which translates to better outcomes for patients.
