Louisville’s Arrhythmia Treatment Destination
As the area’s leading provider of cardiovascular treatment, Norton Heart & Vascular Institute and our four board-certified and fellowship-trained electrophysiologists are the destination for arrhythmia care in Louisville and Southern Indiana.
Our electrophysiology specialists have a deep commitment to innovation and advancing the science of heart care. That means they are constantly learning to provide leading-edge arrhythmia treatments and techniques.
The possibilities for arrhythmia treatment include medication, pacemaker, implantable cardiac defibrillator, cardiac ablation and surgery. With their specialized training, our team of electrophysiologists will use sophisticated equipment to pinpoint your diagnosis and tailor a plan to end your arrhythmia.
Electrophysiology Expertise to Fix Your Heart’s Wiring
Our specially trained electrophysiologists focus on the heart’s electrical system, which controls rhythm and performance. They each have at least 10 years of medical training, including three years beyond board-certified training in cardiology.
The American College of Cardiology has recognized Norton Audubon Hospital and Norton Hospital for their expertise and commitment to treating patients with atrial fibrillation, a common arrhythmia. The accreditation came with a special add-on to recognize the full suite of electrophysiology and surgical services we provide.
At our Heart Rhythm Center, we test the electrical activity of your heart to precisely location the source of an arrhythmia.
Norton Heart & Vascular Institute has three state-of-the-art electrophysiology labs that use 3-D monitoring of your heart’s activity to catch any abnormalities. If your heart’s rhythm is off, it’s time to see a board-certified, fellowship-trained electrophysiologist.
In addition to our four electrophysiologists, the team is staffed with two board-certified electrophysiology nurse practitioners, one board-certified electrophysiology physician assistant, 10 device clinicians and four medical assistants.
The team works with each patient to create a custom plan to diagnose, manage and eliminate heart arrhythmias.
Heart Rhythm Center electrophysiologists work closely with Norton Cardiothoracic Surgery to offer the latest in surgical correction for heart arrhythmias. Learn more about the Heart Rhythm Center.
