Electrophysiology Care

Mercy Medical Group’s electrophysiologists use the most advanced technology and procedures available to detect, diagnose and treat arrhythmias. Electrophysiology is the cardiology specialty that diagnoses and treats problems related to the heart’s electrical system or heart rhythm malfunctions.

Typically, arrhythmias are treated and controlled by medication, implanted heart devices and/or surgical procedures.

Among the treatments offered by Mercy’s electrophysiology team:

  • ICD Placement: An ICD (Implantable Cardioverter Defribillator) is a surgically-placed device that monitors and corrects the heart’s rhythm.
  • Pacemaker Placement: A pacemaker is a surgically-placed device that keeps the heart beating at the right pace.
  • Catheter Ablation: A procedure that destroys the cells causing the heart’s rhythm problems. Mercy also offers a robotic-assisted, less invasive ablation for some arrhythmia patients.
