For Referring Physicians
Physicians in the New York metropolitan area, nationwide and from around the globe refer patients to Mount Sinai's Leona M. and Harry B. Hemsley Charitable Trust Center for Cardiac Electrohysiology for the full spectrum of electrophysiology diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Our Electrophysiology Center and laboratory, inaugurated in 1984, was the first to be established in New York City. It is currently one of the most prominent in the country, offering such complex treatment procedures such as state of the art ablation for atrial fibrillation using not only radiofrequency current but also laser and cryoablation.
The Center is nationally recognized for left atrial occlusive procedures for stroke prophylaxis and the novel experimental treatment of high blood pressure with renal artery sympathetic denervation with radiofrequency energy, It is one of the foremost center in the country offering epicardial mapping, as well as epicardial and endocardial ablation for ventricular tachyarrhythmias, and the use of implantable defibrilators for primary and secondary prevention of sudden cardiac death.
A pioneer in risk stratification for sudden cardiac death, the Center was the first in the country to recommend use of implantable defibrillators in Sarcoid heart disease; the first to use a Lariat Suture Device to occlude the left atrial appendage, and the first to use Laser (Cardiofocus) for pulmonary vein isolation for ablation of atrial fibrillation. The electrophysiology section and its staff of physicians, fellows, nurses and researchers strive to provide excellence in the clinical and experimental arena.
