Heart Rhythm Disorders
Our Heart Rhythm Center has pioneered many innovative treatments and advances in the management of heart rhythm disorders like arrhythmia and atrial fibrillation.
Heart rhythm disorders are the result of electrical problems of the heart.
At UVA, we're pioneering innovative treatments to manage these disorders, called arrhythmias.
Our arrhythmia services include:
Atrial Fibrillation Center
We've treated more than 3,000 afib patients with options that include afib ablation and medical devices like pacemakers.
Get more details about afib treatment at UVA.
We monitor, evaluate and manage patients with pacemakers and defibrillators implanted for heart rhythm disturbances.
Find out more about implantable heart rhythm devices.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest
We're using an innovative new subcutaneous implantable defibrillator (S-ICD) that's placed under the skin and doesn't use wires that touch the heart.
Get more information about sudden cardiac arrest treatment.
Heart monitors worn at home can help identify fast rhythms like like supraventricular tachycardia.

We treat ventricular tachycardia patients using advanced imaging techniques like cardiac MRI and 3D images to ensure successful ablation procedures.
