Expertise in Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Care

At Piedmont Heart, we have one of the leading electrophysiology centers in the country, offering complete consultative, diagnostic and disease management services for patients with heart rhythm disturbances.

With an entire department devoted to carefully monitoring the quality of our care and improving the outcomes you’ll receive, our electrophysiology (EP) team is always focused on your personal care and safety.

All of our EP physicians are board certified in cardiac electrophysiology and routinely collaborate to provide the best care for every patient - in the clinic, the hospital or in the lab. Our team cares exclusively for heart rhythm or arrhythmia issues and conditions such as:

  • Bradycardias
    • Sinus node dysfunction
    • Atrioventricular heart block
  • Supraventricular arrhythmias
    • Atrial fibrillation (AFib or AF)
    • Atrial flutter (AFL)
    • Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT)
      • Atrial tachycardia (AT)
      • Atrioventricular nodal reentrant tachycardia (AVNRT)
      • Atrioventricular reentrant tachycardia (AVRT)
      • Junctional tachycardia (JET)
    • Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome
  • Ventricular arrhythmias
    • Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs)
    • Ventricular tachycardia (VT)
    • Ventricular fibrillation (VF)
    • Risk assessment for sudden cardiac arrest
  • Genetic heart rhythm disorders
    • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM/HOCM)
    • Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysfunction (ARVD/ARVC)
    • Brugada syndrome (BrS)
    • Long QT syndrome (LQTS)
    • Short QT syndrome
    • Catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (CPVT)


Diagnostic Services and Treatments for Heart Rhythm Disruptions

Our range of diagnostic services for the most accurate identification of what is causing heart rhythm disruptions include:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)
  • Ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter, Event monitors)
  • Implantable loop recorders (ILR)
  • Tilt table testing
  • Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE)
  • Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE)
  • Cardiac MRI
  • Electrophysiology (EP) study
  • 3D Cardiac Mapping

It is important to see a heart rhythm specialist if you or a loved one is experiencing any issues such as fatigue, dizziness, fainting or a slow, irregular or rapid heartbeat. Without treatment, arrhythmias can lead to a heart attack or stroke. In many cases, an isolated treatment, such as an ablation or device placement like a pacemaker, will correct your heart rhythm disturbance for optimal heart health. Treatments may include:

  • Cardioversion
  • Catheter ablation
    • Endocardial catheter ablation
      • Radiofrequency ablation
      • Cryoablation / Cryoballoon ablation
      • Rotor mapping (FIRM)
    • Epicardial catheter ablation
    • Surgical ablation / MAZE procedure
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT)
  • Genetic testing
  • Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD)
    • Transvenous ICD
    • Subcutaneous ICD
  • Implantable loop recorder (ILR)
  • Lead extraction
    • Laser lead extraction
    • Mechanical lead extraction
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Medications
  • Permanent pacemakers
    • Transvenous pacemaker
    • Leadless pacemaker
  • Watchman device implant

We offer comprehensive care for atrial fibrillation at our AFib Clinic.
