Arrhythmias (Heart Rhythm Disorders)

UW Health's Heart, Vascular and Thoracic Care program strives to obtain the best possible outcomes in a broad range of potentially disabling or even lethal heart arrhythmias - heart rhythm disorders or irregular heartbeats. Offering inpatient and outpatient diagnosis and treatment, UW Health electrophysiologists within our Electrophysiology Program carefully define each patient's arrhythmic problem, selecting the most appropriate therapy from a broad list of options.
