Heart arrhythmia services at Methodist Heart Hospital

The cardiologists at Methodist Heart Hospital provide expert care for any type of heart arrhythmia you might be experiencing. We treat arrhythmias—when the heart beats too slow, too fast or irregularly—using the latest surgical and non—surgical techniques.

For answers to any questions you have about heart arrhythmias and treatment options, call Methodist Heart Hospital at (210) 575-6800.

Heart arrhythmia treatment

We perform ablations to treat heart arrhythmias. During an ablation, we place a series of catheters (small flexible wires) into a blood vessel in your arm, groin (upper thigh) or neck. A special machine then sends energy to your heart through one of the catheters. This energy treats heart tissue responsible for abnormal heartbeats.

We provide ongoing support for patients with heart arrhythmias through our cardiovascular rehabilitation program.

Heart arrhythmia at Methodist Healthcare

Heart arrhythmias are disruptions in a regular heart rhythm, which can include slow, irregular or fast heart beats. They occur when the electrical impulses to the heart stray from their normal sequence and can range from being harmless to life-threatening.
