Cardiac Arrhythmia Care Team

Cardiac Arrhythmia: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Recognized care: Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute is among the top heart programs in the nation and the top-ranked program in Tennessee, according to U.S. News & World Report
  • Depth of experience: Because we are one of the busiest heart programs in the U.S., we have more experience than most. That means quality care for you. We have special expertise in atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and left atrial appendage closure. We welcome patients with even the most complex heart arrhythmias, including those who haven’t had successful treatment at other hospitals.
  • A team approach: Our electrophysiologists work closely with interventional cardiologists, nurses and nurse practitioners to provide complete care, personalized for you.
  • Advanced treatments: At Vanderbilt you may have access to advanced treatments before they are widely available. We have worked with manufacturers to introduce new medical devices to treat cardiac arrhythmia. Our doctors have helped develop new surgical techniques for closing the heart’s left atrial appendage, reducing stroke risk for patients with atrial fibrillation.
