Electrophysiology Program
New Procedures

Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare’s Cardiac Electrophysiology Program (EP) is the oldest and most advanced electrophysiology program in the Big Bend region, with a staff that is wholly dedicated to helping people with irregular heartbeats. The largest program in the region, it is also home to two state-of-the art electrophysiology labs and board-certified electrophysiologists who specialized in treating a vast range of arrhythmias and other disorders associated with a high risk of sudden death, such as atrial fibrillation.

We offer a full range of treatments, including medical management, pacemaker implantation and maintenance, defibrillators, radiofrequency ablation, and other advanced treatments for the most therapy-resistant cases of arrhythmia. TMH is also the only facility in the region offering laser-assisted lead extraction of chronic infected or non-functional device leads – a complex procedure to remove and/or replace a pacing device.

The TMH Cardiac EP Program has the depth and breadth of experience needed to offer a full range of diagnosis and minimally invasive treatments related to:

  • Tachycardia – too-fast heartbeat
  • Bradycardia – too-slow heartbeat
  • Irregular heart beat
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Rhythm restoration in heart failure
  • Syncope – heart-associated fainting
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Other disorders associated with high risk of sudden death

The physicians and staff in the Cardiac EP Program work closely with physicians in the community to provide a team approach to diagnosis and treatment. All patients referred to the program are offered an appointment for evaluation within a few days of the initial referral.
