Eric Grubman, MD, specializes in electrophysiology, the diagnosis and treatment of irregularities in the heart’s electrical system. He treats patients with slow heart rhythms, tachycardia and other cardiac arrhythmias, and is an expert at implanting pacemakers and defibrillators.

Dr. Grubman was the first doctor in Connecticut to implant a leadless pacemaker in a patient. Pacemakers regulate electrical signals that control heartbeat, and leadless pacemakers are miniaturized versions that are inserted directly into the heart instead of an external “pocket” in the patient’s chest. Implantation of a leadless pacemaker is less invasive and causes less scarring.

He chose cardiology because of the “complexity of the issues and the ability to provide quality care to patients.” As a researcher, Dr. Grubman investigates novel pacemaker designs and new treatments for cardiac arrhythmia.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
