Heart Rhythm Program

Tallahassee Memorial’s Heart Rhythm Program (formerly known as the Electrophysiology Program) is the oldest, largest and most advanced electrophysiology program in the Big Bend region, with a staff that is wholly dedicated to helping people with arrhythmias, or irregular heartbeats. The Heart Rhythm Program encompasses the advanced electrophysiology (EP) labs housed in our Heart & Vascular Center and TMH Physician Partners, Services by Southern Medical Group – Heart Rhythm Clinic.

Treatments We Offier

At the Tallahassee Memorial Heart & Vascular Center, 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 the world's smallest pacemaker and laser-assisted lead extraction of chronic infected or non-functional device leads – a complex procedure to remove and/or replace a pacing device.
