Carolina Regional Arrhythmia Center

Carolina Regional Arrhythmia Center combines a group of leading Electrophysiologists and Cardiothoracic Surgeons to provide the highest level of advanced cardiac care.  Their standard of care has significantly contributed to High Point Regional Health’s recognition as one of the top 50 Cardiovascular Hospitals in the nation, as well as being recognized as top physicians in North Carolina.  These physicians are supported by an outstanding group of nurses, clinical assistants, technicians and administrative staff who pride themselves in delivering the highest level of comprehensive cardiac services.

Our Board Certified Electrophysiologists specialize in diagnosing, treating and managing irregular heart rhythms and problems related to the heart’s electrical system.  They are able to provide medical management, treatment and/or surgical procedures to help reduce and/or eliminate these arrhythmias.

Rhythms we address include atrial fibrillation (A Fib), atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia, premature ventricular contractions, ventricular tachycardia, Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, and others.

Procedures performed include implantation of Loop Recorders, Pacemakers, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Devices (aka Bi-Ventricular Devices), Ablations, Cardioversions and Tilt Table Tests.  In addition, new rhythm management treatments are being developed and implemented including convergent A Fib ablation, epicardial ablation, left atrial appendage closure device and hybrid epicardial-endocardial ablation.
