Worldwide recognition

Our highly trained cardiac specialists and surgeons have pioneered numerous techniques and innovative procedures, making Scripps La Jolla Regional Cardiac Arrhythmia Center internationally recognized. These innovations include:

  • First in San Diego to use catheter ablation to cure arrhythmias
  • First in Southern California to surgically correct Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, a condition that can cause an extremely rapid heart rate
  • First in Southern California to perform open heart surgery to cure arrhythmias
  • First in the U.S. to implant a specific dual-chamber defibrillator
  • Second in the U.S. to implant a biventricular (triple-chamber) defibrillator
  • Largest enrolling center in the world for the landmark Contak CD trial of biventricular pacing defibrillators (cardiac resynchronization therapy) electrical treatment for heart failure.
  • First in the world to test a MEM sensor to evaluate cardiac dyssynchrony and biventricular pacing
  • First in Southern California to utilize CARTO sound mapping technology in atrial fibrillation ablation
  • First in California to utilize Carrot EP lab integrated monitor system.
  • One of the first hospitals in country to utilize Hansen Sensei X robot for catheter ablation.
