At Tampa General, our cardiac clinical electrophysiologists are board-certified experts in the electrical activity of the heart who care for thousands of patients diagnosed with a full range of heart arrhythmias and some of the most difficult cases.
In conjunction with a diverse, multidisciplinary team of other cardiac specialists, our electrophysiologists perform EP studies at a high volume and use advanced 3-D mapping and imaging systems to diagnose and treat a wide variety of heart rate and heart rhythm disorders.
Leading Referral Center
Tampa General is a leading referral center for tertiary and chronic atrial fibrillation, complex ventricular arrhythmias, failed ablations, scar tissue associated with heart disease, and post-surgery complications. Our advanced treatment options lead to better outcomes particularly in patients with more sustained and chronic forms of AFib who may have failed conventional therapy.
We are one of only five centers in the U.S. to offer cardiac conduction system pacing, which helps create normal heart activity with fewer side effects and less risk of a heart attack.
Nationally Recognized Care
Tampa General Hospital is known for providing world-class care and our collaboration with the University of South Florida has placed us at the forefront of innovation in the vascular treatment landscape.
Because of our commitment to excellent care, U.S. News & World Report has recognized Tampa General Hospital as “high performing" in Cardiology & Heart Surgery, meaning we are ranked in the top 10% in the nation.
Delivering World Class Heart Care
Team Approach to Care
Each member of our care team specializes in treating atrial fibrillation and other cardiac arrhythmias. The care team includes an electrophysiologist (a cardiologist who specializes in heart rhythm conditions), a cardiologist, a heart failure specialist, an echocardiographer, a cardiac anesthesiologist, as well as nurse practitioners and care team coordinators. Our multidisciplinary approach to care combined with high-volume experience allows us to develop a safe and effective treatment plan and to monitor your progress and response to treatment.
Clinical Trials & Published Studies
Our specialized team participates in several clinical trials, including ones involving AFib and ablation catheter technology. Additionally, TGH has been at the forefront of conduction system pacing studies, which focus on directly stimulating the heart’s own pacing system to help it more normally sustain its electrical impulses. This is in contrast to the conventional approach of heart muscle pacing.
