Cardiac Electrophysiology Service

The USC Cardiac Electrophysiology Service offers specialized treatment to patients who are diagnosed with arrhythmias and/or heart failure. Our understanding of the processes that lead to heart failure enables us to take effective steps to change the course of the disease. The Cardiac Electrophysiology Service is dedicated to treating a patient as a whole person and to delivering the highest level of comprehensive care. We integrate the efforts of various USC physicians and nurse specialists who treat heart failure. Our mission is to provide patients with treatments that slow disease progression, prolong survival, and improve quality of life.

Patients at the USC Cardiac Electrophysiology Service have a team that will monitor and work with them to tailor therapies to their specific needs. Recognized leaders in the area of heart failure and arrhythmias evaluate patient conditions and consult with patient's physicians to discuss findings and recommendations. We work closely with patients to ensure that they have a clear understanding of their treatment plan. It is very important to us that patients are comfortable with the therapies agreed upon.
