The Electrophysiology department deals with disorders of the heart’s electrical system (arrhythmias). Left untreated, some of these abnormal heart rhythms can cause fainting, shortness of breath, and even death.
At Metromed International Cardiac Centre we have a dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and other staff who work closely to offer each patient a program, tailored to his or her needs. The department was established under the dynamic leadership of Dr. Arun Gopi. Our hospital is the first hospital in North Kerala to have a state of the art fully equipped Electrophysiology Department with 3D electroanatomic mapping facility that caters to all Rhythm disturbances.
Radiofrequency ablation is a simple, minimally invasive procedure done under local anesthesia which requires only one or two days of hospital stay. In many cases, this emerging technology literally cures these troublesome arrhythmias and the patient can be off medications life long after this treatment.
The MICC Cardiac Electrophysiology Services offers effective and comprehensive care to patients who are diagnosed with arrhythmias and heart failure. We offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services, including non pharmacologic, curative catheter ablation procedures for all types of supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias, 3-D electroanatomic mapping and ablation, non-invasive risk stratification for arrhythmias, device implantation and renal denervation therapy. We also provide the latest implantable devices for those patients who need them.
