The physicians and staff of Emory Heart & Vascular Center’s Electrophysiology (EP) program perform more than 5,000 procedures annually, distinguishing Emory’s team as one of the most experienced in the country.
Emory's EP team comprises leading experts in cardiac resynchronization for congestive heart failure, having performed the first implant in Georgia. Our electrophysiologists have pioneered breakthroughs in catheter ablation for arrhythmias and cryoballoon ablation for atrial fibrillation. As a result, Emory's team is globally recognized for its clinical care and research in managing cardiac arrhythmias.
Did you Know?Emory excels in advanced technologies for atrial fibrillation ablation, including pulsed-field ablation. Our team performs a high volume of hybrid endocardial and epicardial ablations (convergent procedures) for atrial fibrillation. We are leaders in complex ventricular tachycardia (VT) management. Our comprehensive program includes recurrent ICD shock management and advanced therapies such as epicardial ablation, surgical sympathectomy, stereotactic radiotherapy ablation, open chest surgical ablation, and heart failure therapy evaluation. Emory pioneered the use of WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Implant for non-valvular atrial fibrillation, the first in Georgia.. As a national leader in LAAC implants, we actively participate in clinical trials for innovative device alternatives to anticoagulation.
