Our highly skilled and experienced team specializes in electrophysiology, or the diagnosis and treatment of heart-rhythm abnormalities, also known as arrhythmias. We treat complex arrhythmias and structural heart disease at Yale New Haven Hospital and through several outpatient office locations.
At Yale New Haven Hospital, our physicians operate Connecticut’s largest and most comprehensive program for ventricular tachycardia ablation, a procedure that eliminates the heart tissue that causes arrhythmia. Our Complex Ablation Program offers epicardial ablation to treat ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation that originates from the outer surface of the heart. Our operating suites are equipped with cutting-edge technology, including three-dimensional mapping systems, intracardiac ultrasound, and robotics. We offer a full range of device therapies, including pacemakers, defibrillators, and cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT). We routinely monitor implantable devices using remote technology to ensure patients’ safety, wherever they are.
We also offer a clinic in which doctors from electrophysiology and geriatrics work together to manage patients with recurrent falls and syncope, or fainting caused by low blood pressure. Additionally, Yale New Haven Hospital runs the only Atrial Fibrillation Support Group in the state. The group is for all patients and their families and aims to help individuals and their loved ones cope with the psychological and emotional burdens of their disease.
For patients at Yale New Haven Hospital, an advanced nurse practitioner dedicated to arrhythmia management is ready to assist, working closely with physicians to ensure a seamless inpatient to outpatient transition.
