Performing the most electrophysiology inpatient procedures annually in Oregon, the arrhythmia services’ specialists of Providence Heart and Vascular Institute are your experts in the treatment of heart rhythm conditions.
Arrhythmia (cardiac rhythm management) services are among Providence Heart and Vascular Institute’s comprehensive interventional cardiovascular services and are provided at two of our Portland-area hospitals: Providence Portland Medical Center
and Providence St. Vincent Medical Center
Our programs are committed to offering patients the latest advancements in arrhythmia services. The Providence Portland Medical Center team has the distinction of being the first on the West Coast to offer the convergent procedure. This new minimally invasive ablation procedure combines the skills of two experts, an electrophysiologist and a cardiothoracic surgeon, working in tandem, while significantly reducing the risk and recovery time for the patient. Additionally, Providence St. Vincent Medical Center is home to the Center for the Advanced Treatment of Atrial Fibrillation, a multidisciplinary comprehensive center with a focus on the treatment of the most commonly diagnosed heart rhythm disorder.
From diagnosis to treatment to follow-up, the heart rhythm specialists of Providence Heart and Vascular Institute work collaboratively with each patient’s primary care physician, cardiologist, and other specialists to ensure appropriate, effective diagnosis and treatment.
