Many Americans experience irregular heartbeats, also called arrhythmias. This condition is usually caused by an electrical “short circuit” in the heart, which can cause the heart to beat too slowly, too quickly or irregularly.
If you have a healthy heart, an abnormal heart rhythm may not pose a significant health risk. But if you have heart disease or other cardiovascular issues, abnormal heart rhythms can become serious or even life threatening.
The Cardiac Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Management Program at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute offers comprehensive diagnosis and treatment of patients with heart rhythm disturbances and complex heart rhythm disorders, including those with:
- Atrial fibrillation
- Cardiac arrhythmias
- Fainting episodes (syncope)
- Supraventricular tachycardia
Led by a highly skilled and experienced group of electrophysiologists, including John Cogan, MD and Daniel Benhayon, MD, and backed by our comprehensive TotalHeart team, we deliver quality, coordinated and compassionate cardiac electrophysiology care to patients in Broward County, Miami-Dade County and beyond from adolescence to adulthood.
