Welcome

The Arrhythmia Institute is a single specialty cardiac electrophysiology practice, founded in 2004, that provides state-of-the-art comprehensive care for patients with heart rhythm disorders.

All of our physicians are board certified in cardiology and clinical cardiac electrophysiology and have trained at nationally renowned centers of excellence in cardiac electrophysiology. Our practice combines clinical expertise in implantable devices and advanced ablation with a robust clinical research program that offers patients access to the most up-to-date arrhythmia therapies. With offices in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and an electrophysiology laboratory equipped with the most modern imaging and three-dimensional mapping systems, our physicians are able to deliver accessible and individualized care to our patients.

Patient Resources

One of our goals in providing comprehensive and compassionate clinical care is the education of our patients. This process begins during office visits with interactions with our physicians and highly trained office staff. The menu at the top of this page provides links to a host of resources for patients to explore while expanding their knowledge of the physiology of cardiac rhythm disorders and available therapies.

Lead Extraction Program!

With an increasing complexity of issues related to management of pacing and defibrillation leads, our physicians strive to use the latest evidence to guide our patients in making informed decisions regarding their devices and leads. Our extraction program has grown to meet the expanding needs of our patients and their device-related issues. Our program includes a high-volume laser extraction program that allows for complex lead management while maintaining the highest levels of patient safety.

Remote Arrhythmia Monitoring!

Our Arrhythmia Institute team has integrated new software to allow our patients to undergo monitoring for arrhythmias in the comfort of their homes and during their activities of daily living. Through these systems we provide our patients with the highest level of care including real time monitoring outside of the hospital and office settings. Studies have demonstrated clinical benefit of early detection of arrhythmia and our practice is committed to using the latest technology to maximize therapeutic benefits and minimize risk for our patients through optimal outpatient arrhythmia monitoring.
