Electrophysiology

Cardiac arrhythmias are disruptions in the rate or rhythm of the heart's electrical system, which controls how the heart contracts and pumps blood. Most arrhythmias are harmless, but others can be serious or life-threatening.

UC San Diego Health System's renowned electrophysiology program is dedicated to diagnosing, preventing and treating all types of cardiac arrhythmia.

Our board-certified electrophysiologists, under the leadership of Gregory Feld, MD, perform one of the largest volumes of device implantations, ablations and laser lead extractions in the nation. We offer advanced remote monitoring for devices, and are experts in using minimally invasive surgical techniques.
