The Arrhythmia Management and Electrophysiology Service at NewYork-Presbyterian is dedicated to diagnosing and treating heart rhythm disorders in children and adolescents. Our pediatric cardiac electrophysiologists care for children with a wide range of arrhythmias, from those with occasional episodes of palpitations to patients with complex cardiac arrhythmias, including heart rhythm problems after open-heart surgery. If your child has an arrhythmia, we offer:
Extraordinary Experience: Our pediatric cardiac electrophysiologists manage one of the largest programs of its kind in the New York metropolitan region. We use state-of-the-art technology, including three-dimensional mapping, to define the source of your child's abnormal heart rhythm. Our team is specifically trained in performing electrophysiology procedures in children, which requires an in-depth knowledge of anatomical development and the use of smaller catheters.
Comprehensive Diagnosis and Effective Treatment: The most important step in your child's care is the diagnosis. We offer diagnostic testing to determine the type and location of the abnormal heart rhythm. Armed with that knowledge, we tailor a customized treatment plan for your child using medication, ablation, or the implantation of a pacemaker or other device to restore a normal rhythm to your child's heart.
Specialized Fetal Care: Our electrophysiologists participate in the care of fetal arrhythmias by treating the mother with anti-arrhythmic medications and working with our maternal-fetal medicine specialists to treat the arrhythmia before birth.
