Electrophysiology Treatment

Dr. Zagrodsky uses the latest technology and treatment options at MCH Electrophysiology to correct abnormal heart rhythms, including:

  • Drug therapy – You may be prescribed different medications that help your heartbeat in a normal rhythm, control the heart rate, and prevent stroke.
  • Cardioversion– This is a procedure performed in the hospital which uses small, timed electrical shocks to the heart to restore a regular rhythm.
  • Implantable Defibrillator or Pacemaker – These small devices may be surgically placed under the skin to keep track of your heart rate and deliver an electric shock if the heart stops beating or is beating irregularly.
  • Radiofrequency ablation – This procedure is performed by a catheter and uses radiofrequency energy to treat the paths causing the abnormal heart rates.
  • Cryoblation – This procedure is done by a catheter and involves freezing the tissue in the heart that are causing the irregular rhythms. It can be done in less time than radiofrequency ablation and can take away the need for blood thinners such as Coumadin.
