Cardiac Electrophysiology of Alabama

Treatment for Arrhythmias & Heart Conditions

An arrhythmia involves irregular electrical activity of the heart. These heart rhythm abnormalities cause the heart to beat irregularly and either too slowly or too fast. While some people have harmless, asymptomatic arrhythmias, others can face a life-threatening cardiac emergency.

Our Tuscaloosa Cardiac Electrophysiology facility is solely focused on abnormalities in the heart’s electrical system. If you are in West Alabama and need diagnosis and treatment of your cardiac rhythm abnormalities, we are here for you. Conveniently located in the DCH Tower in Tuscaloosa and led by a widely celebrated and accomplished doctor with hometown roots, our office is equipped and ready to ensure you are always in the best of health.

What Is Cardiac Electrophysiology?

Cardiac electrophysiology is a branch of medicine that detects, diagnoses, and treats heart conditions affecting the electrical activity of the human heart. To understand how our board-certified electrophysiologist, Dr. Nada Memon can help you, it helps to know more about how the human heart works. In a healthy person, the heart muscle produces electrical impulses in a predictable pattern, which causes the heart to contract and pump blood at a steady pace. Your heart has an electric system, and it depends on its electrical signals to perform its primary functions. When the heart’s electrical signals are disturbed, heart rhythm becomes irregular, and the functions the heart performs are compromised, which can lead to a life-threatening, sudden cardiac arrest, when the heart suddenly stops beating.

Cardiac electrophysiologists treat patients with the following conditions, among others:

  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Bradycardia
  • Tachycardia
  • Ventricular tachycardia
  • Supraventricular tachycardia
  • Ventricular fibrillation
  • Sudden cardiac arrest
  • Long QT syndrome
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome

Our Cardiac Electrophysiology Services:

  • Cardiac Ablations for Atrial Fibrillation, Atrial Flutter, Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), Premature Ventricular Contractions (PVCs), Ventricular Tachycardia (VT), and Electrophysiology Studies.
  • Cardiac Devices such as Pacemakers, Implantable Cardiovertor Defibrillator (ICD), and Resynchronization Devices (BiV-ICD), all Services by a Dedicated Device Clinic.
  • Other services include Monitoring Devices, Loop Recorders, and Tilt Table Diagnostic Testing.
