Electrophysiology Program

The electrophysiologists at Temple have decades of experience diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders. We perform routine and complex electrophysiology procedures with the help of some of the newest technologies, often improving quality of life for patients and reducing their risk of heart failure, stroke, or other serious issues.

The experience of the Temple electrophysiology team has made Temple a leading regional referral center for complex ablations, lead extractions, and other advanced arrhythmia management techniques. 

Leading-Edge Diagnostics

With one of the largest electrophysiology (EP) facilities in Pennsylvania, our EP specialists can perform sophisticated procedures and studies, including cardiac electrical mapping, 3D diagnostics, intracardiac echocardiography, tilt table testing and wireless monitoring, to help diagnose elusive, rare, or complex arrhythmias.

We then offer a variety of therapies, from counseling and medication management to interventional procedures, to help patients manage these disorders.

Advanced Treatments

To correct potentially dangerous heart rhythm issues, the electrophysiology team can conduct a variety of procedures, including catheter ablations, cardioversion, and pacemaker or implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) placements. To make sure we stay on the leading edge of treatment and diagnosis, Temple’s electrophysiologists participate in multi-center clinical trials and constantly investigate new technology and treatment options. We also collaborate with our cardiovascular surgery colleagues on advanced procedures like MAZE for complex arrhythmias.
