The human body uses electrical signals to control and enable everything; from something mundane as picking up a book to something critical such as determining the rhythm of the heart. Electrophysiologists are Cardiologists who specialize in the study and treatment of rhythm disorders in the heart. They work closely with Cardiac surgeons in the diagnosis and treatment of arrhythmias and are also involved during the surgical implantation of pacemakers and defibrillators.
Cardiology has always been Faith’s forte and its Electrophysiologists are talented and experienced medical professionals. Their considerable skills and abilities are enhanced by the state of the art facilities and infrastructure at NH hospitals including its advanced Cath labs. Cardiac patients at NH hospitals benefit from the presence of multiple allied specialties who complement each other to provide optimal care, treatment and recovery.
A common procedure performed by Electrophysiologists is an Electrophysiology study (EP study), it is a minimally invasive procedure and is used to investigate the cause, location and treatment of various rhythm disorders and in particular Cardiac Arrhythmias.
