An electrophysiologist is a cardiologist who diagnoses and treats arrhythmias, or irregular heart rhythms.

Electrophysiologists at CAMC offer the most advanced tests and treatments for arrhythmia of any hospital in West Virginia. Our team has performed thousands of these procedures, which means we’re also among the most experienced in the state.

Specialized Care for Atrial Fibrillation

One of the most common heart abnormalities, atrial fibrillation is an irregular beating of the upper chambers of the heart. Symptoms can include heart palpitations, lightheadedness, dizziness, shortness of breath and chest pain. If left untreated, it can increase a patient’s risk of stroke and other health issues.

At CAMC, our team specializes in diagnosing and managing atrial fibrillation. Using sophisticated diagnostic equipment and tests, we can identify the condition, monitor ongoing issues and provide effective treatments. Treatments include medications and nonsurgical procedures such as pacemaker implants, implantable cardioverter defibrillators and catheter ablation.

Experts in Pacemaker and Defibrillator Implantation

At CAMC, our experienced team are experts in treating arrhythmias and other disturbances in the heart’s rhythm. Such treatments includes the placement of pacing and rhythm-control devices, such as pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs).

Our providers have years of experience working with these complex devices, giving us a high level of expertise. Moreover, we are at the forefront of advanced pacemaker and ICD technology. In fact, CAMC electrophysiologists implanted the first leadless pacemaker in the state in 2017.

In addition to implantation, our team provides routine and extended interrogations, optimization and reprogramming to ensure optimal function of these devices.
