Conditions We Treat

We Treat Arrhythmias!


The symptoms of arrhythmia range from palpitations, episodes of dizziness, and syncope (passing out).  The preliminary evaluation of these symptoms includes an electrocardiogram (EKG), and echocardiogram as well as ambulatory monitoring with an EKG system the patient wears at home to record the heart rhythm during the episodes of symptoms.  Once this evaluation is completed, a discussion of the management options, including pros and cons of each potential course of treatment, are reviewed to generate a plan based on the best available medical evidence.  Specific types of arrhythmias we treat:

  • Paroxysmal Supraventricular Tachycardia (PSVT)
  • Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome (WPW)
  • Atrial Flutter
  • Atrial Tachycardia
  • Atrial Fibrillation (AFib)
  • Ventricular tachycardia (VT) 
 
We have the most experience with catheter ablation for the treatment of Atrial Fibrillation in West Texas and Southern New Mexico.  In addition, we are the only group of physicians who regularly use the advanced technology of Stereotaxis Remote Magnetic Navigation for complex catheter ablation procedures.  Stereotaxis allows more precise and accurate catheter movement for EP procedures with potentially better safety and efficacy for ablation.

We also specialize in the implantation and management of cardiac rhythm devices, including:

  • Pacemakers for patients with symptoms due to slow heart rate
  • Internal cardiac defibrillators (ICDs) for patients at increased risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA)
  • Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for severe heart failure
  • Implantable loop recorder (ILR) to aid in the diagnosis of the heart rhythm disorder
  • Device and lead extraction



Every patient with a cardiac rhythm device in our practice has their device checked personally by a Board Certified Electrophysiologist in our office, not an industry representative.  This assures the device is programmed for optimal performance and treatment.
