Arrhythmia / Electrophysiology


At University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System, our mission is to offer unique, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmias, and other electrophysiology issues.  UIC faculty has been at the center of cardiac electrophysiology innovation.  In collaboration with Boston Scientific the Cryo Balloon atrial fibrillation ablation technology was developed at UIC.  UIC faculty is continually innovating to improve current therapeutic arrhythmia technologies and introduce new techniques and tools to make curative technologies safer and more effective.


Diagnostic procedures
Electrophysiology study
Tilt table test
Event recorder
Holter monitor
Implantable loop recorder


Therapeutic procedures – Device implantation
Pacemaker implantation
Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation
Cardiac resynchronization therapy


Therapeutic procedures – ablation

Radiofrequency ablation of ventricular arrhythmia’s 

Radiofrequency ablation of supraventricular arrhythmia’s  

Radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation

Cryo-balloon ablation of atrial fibrillation

Non- contact mapping and intra-cardiac echocardiography


In addition to applying the most advanced techniques and technology in the EP lab, we pursue an active research program, including basic research, animal research, and human trials.
