The Heart Rhythm Disorders Program at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Heart & Vascular Center is known worldwide for its expertise in the evaluation and treatment of a range of abnormal heart rhythms affecting a variety of patients, particularly those with complex medical concerns.
What are heart arrhythmias?
Heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias) are disturbances in the normal rhythmic beating of the heart. They cause it to beat too slowly or too fast. The most common type of heart rhythm disorder is atrial fibrillation.
Our board-certified cardiologists—renowned researchers in cardiac electrophysiology— serve on the faculty at Harvard Medical School. They lead a multidisciplinary team of nurses, physician assistants, technicians, fellows and research assistants in the exclusive care of patients with irregular heart rhythms, heart palpitations and rapid heartbeats.
