At the Arizona Heart Rhythm Center, we are a dedicated team of professionals treating heart rhythm abnormalities. We treat each patient as an individual with specific needs and emotional responses to his or her symptoms and concerns. We think of our patients as partners in the task of restoring them to good health. In this mutual enterprise, communication, education and full disclosure are key elements for both partners. Our entire staff partner with patients and their families to identify a full range of patient needs and desires. Your well-being and highest possible quality of life are our top priorities.
We offer a variety of highly specialized approaches to heart rhythm problems. These include:
- A full range of the newest pacemaker and cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) devices to provide individualized treatment for many irregular heart rhythms.
- Biventricular pacemakers, to improve left ventricular function in patients with heart failure. This treatment complements medical therapy used to treat heart failure and pacemaker/ICD therapy used to treat arrhythmias associated with heart failure.
- Removal of leads from damaged and infected pacemakers or defibrillators using laser technology.
- Advanced mapping and ablation therapy for atrial and ventricular tachycardias.
- Atrial Fibrillation: We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation using the newest medications, cardioversion, and ablation (non-surgical procedure that uses energy delivered through a tiny catheter to isolate the tissue in the heart causing the arrhythmia).
- Implantation of Left Atrial Appendage occlusion devices for stroke prevention in patients with atrial fibrillation.
- Syncope (fainting): We use a full range of diagnostic tests including the head upright tilt test, implantable heart monitors, and electrophysiology studies to evaluate patients with syncope.
The excellence, experience, and skill of the members of our practice, combined with true caring for our patients’ well-being, make us the leaders in the diagnosis and care of patients with abnormal heart rhythms.
