About the Cardiovascular Electrophysiologist at Munroe Heart
To meet the needs of our community, Munroe Heart has added cardiac electrophysiology (EP), which focuses solely on the electrical system of the heart. Munroe's state of the art EP lab serves patients with complex cardiac rhythm disturbances (rapid heartbeats), including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia ablations. These procedures are performed with the latest 3-D mapping technology.
Patients who have heart rhythm problems, and who have previously had to travel distances for their care, now have access to Marion County's first EP program and the nationally recognized expertise of Munroe Heart.
This year alone, Marion County's first and only EP lab has seen over 425 patients and performed more than 1,360 procedures. That's experience you can trust. If you have a heart problem, insist on Munroe Heart. Because when it's your heart, second best is not an option. There is a real quality difference in the care at Munroe Heart, and it matters.
