Cardiac Arrhythmia Treatment

Scripps Health offers expert treament for cardiac arrhythmias

Scripps Provides Advanced Care for Cardiac Arrhythmia

Scripps board-certified cardiac electrophysiologists diagnose and treat more patients with abnormal heart rhythms than any other San Diego health care provider. These dangerous heart conditions — whose episodes often occur intermittently — are also known as heart arrhythmias.


Scripps electrophysiologists work hand-in-hand with your primary care physician, cardiologist and medical colleagues across multiple specialties and sub-specialties to provide the best possible treatment and options for all types of arrhythmias.
