Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Treatment Program

The Rutgers Health Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Treatment program deals with heart arrhythmias (irregular heart rhythms) and related disorders. Conditions we evaluate and treat include:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Atrial flutter
  • Fainting
  • Inherited arrhythmias
    • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC)
    • Brugada syndrome
    • Long QT syndrome
  • Premature atrial contractions
  • Premature ventricular contractions
  • Sinus node dysfunction
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia

We also provide the following services:

  • Cardioversion (electric shocks to the heart through electrodes on the chest to restore normal heart rhythm)
  • Catheter ablation (a procedure that can correct heart rhythm problems) including epicardial ablations
  • Device placement for left atrial appendage occlusion to reduce stroke risk
  • Electrocardiography (recording electrical charges in the heart)
  • Laser lead extractions
  • Pacemaker and defibrillator placement, including remote monitoring and device evaluation
  • Tilt table testing (to determine why there may be a decrease in oxygen reaching the brain)

Physicians who serve the Rutgers Health Arrhythmia Diagnosis and Treatment program are faculty members of Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and teach about all aspects of cardiology and arrhythmia. Each brings leading-edge knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.
