The electrophysiology team cares for children with all types of heart rhythm disorders.   

Our team consists of experienced pediatric electrophysiologists trained to identify and correct abnormal pathways in the electrical system of the heart. Other team members include electrophysiology nurses and specialized technicians.

The electrophysiology team is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for children who are experiencing heart rhythm issues. We use the latest technology and treatment methods to give every child the best possible outcome.

What to Expect - Electrophysiology Study

The Electrophysiology (EP) team can examine your child’s heart to identify—and in some cases, treat—abnormal pathways in the electrical system of the heart. EP studies are done under anesthesia and attended by pediatric anesthesiologists to ensure your child is safe and comfortable the whole time.
