Expert care and the latest therapies for cardiac arrhythmia
At the New England Cardiac Arrhythmia Center at Tufts Medical Center in downtown Boston, MA, you'll find the region’s most comprehensive program for treating the full range of heart rhythm disorders, including those needing medical therapy, ablation treatment, pacemakers and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs).
Our highly specialized electrophysiologists cure many heart arrhythmias using the latest techniques, including radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation, an approach that can eliminate the need for long-term drug treatment in some patients.
Through clinical trials conducted by our cardiac specialists, many patients have access to the latest advances in antiarrhythmic drugs, ICDs, pacemakers and ablation techniques. In fact, our doctors helped write the national guidelines for the evaluation and management of atrial fibrillation and national guidelines for implantation of pacemakers and ICDs.
We also harness technology to make your life easier, eliminating the need in some cases for quarterly checkups at our Boston offices. For instance, if you have a permanent pacemaker, you can be monitored in the comfort of your home by our team at the New England Cardiac Arrhythmia Monitoring Center.
