Cleveland Clinic Florida’s Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing Section offers a variety of diagnostic and treatment options to help patients with heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias). Arrhythmias are conditions that cause the heart to beat too fast, too slow, or irregularly, resulting in a wide range of symptoms including a fluttering or racing heart beat, dizziness, light-headedness, fainting, shortness of breath, chest discomfort, and even sudden death.
The conditions are classified according to the speed of the heart rate as well as in which part of the heart they develop. Doctors may refer to an arrhythmia as atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular fibrillation, or bradycardia.
Following a collaborative model of medicine, the section unites cardiac electrophysiologists, cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and imaging specialists to provide patients with coordinated diagnostic capabilities and highly specialized comprehensive treatment options, including the latest medications and leading-edge technologies, such as non-surgical catheter-based ablation therapies, magnetically driven navigational procedures and cardioversion.
Cleveland Clinic Florida’s electrophysiologists have conducted close to 1,000 procedures since 2010, such as cardioversions, pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, lead extractions and catheter ablations. Our team is nationally recognized and specifically trained in complex cardiac ablation, including ablation of ventricular tachycardia and pulmonary vein isolation procedures for atrial fibrillation.
Cleveland Clinic's health network has the largest and premier electronically integrated device follow-up system in the world, linking the patient, device and doctors together. Patients with pacemakers, implantable defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization devices are quickly notified of the status of their device through the use of the MyChart®, Cleveland Clinic’s electronic medical record system.
New Location Now Open at Martin North Hospital
The Electrophysiology Laboratory at Cleveland Clinic Martin Health's Frances Langford Heart Center in Stuart, FL is scheduled to open in August, 2020. As part of the Cleveland Clinic's collaborative model of care, the lab is designed to perform diagnostic, therapeutic and interventional electrophysiology procedures.
Advanced technology along with vast knowledge and skill of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing physicians will allow for many complex procedures and device implants to help improve outcomes for patients suffering heart arrhythmias.Learn More

You can now stay connected to your healthcare team through virtual visits, using your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Why go virtual? It's an easy, convenient and secure way to see your provider face-to-face without having to leave home. This saves you travel time, parking fees and time spent in the waiting room — and you can also have a loved one or caregiver join you. If appropriate, you can also get a prescription sent to the pharmacy of your choice.
Many insurance companies cover the cost of virtual visits, so check with your insurance company ahead of time. Interested in getting started? Call your provider to find out what virtual visit options are available.
