Electrophysiology (Pacemakers)

In contrast to treatments when heart blockages occur, other serious conditions are impacted when the electrical system to the heart malfunctions or suddenly becomes very irregular. Each hospital has experienced electrophysiologists adept at pacemaker procedures used in treating many of these cases.

The Heart Rhythm Center at Jersey Shore University Medical Center has state-of-the art equipment and licensure to treat the full range of these conditions. Here, Jersey Shore is advancing another innovative approach to treating arrhythmia with a minimally invasive catheter-based procedure for atrial fibrillation using a robotic system designed to facilitate complex procedures with accurate and stable control. The procedure room houses the most advanced mapping and imaging equipment controlled by leading electrophysiologists in the field.

Jersey Shore is also the only hospital in the area that can perform Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) procedures. For treatment of congestive heart failure, a biventricular pacemaker or ICD may be used to reduce symptoms and improve cardiac function.
