Patients rely on Penn Heart and Vascular at Chester County Hospital for local access to advanced care. Our program offers the advanced technologies of a regional center of excellence paired with the concern and responsiveness patients have come to expect from Chester County Hospital.
Our team of cardiologists and electrophysiologists are skilled in treating difficult or persistent arrhythmias that are resistant to medication or failed previous attempts at ablations.
- Atrial Fibrillation Ablation
- Atrial Flutter Ablation
- Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) Ablation
- Ventricular Tachycardia (VT) Ablation
- Premature Ventricular Complexes (PVC) Ablation
- Pacemaker Implantation
- ICD Implantation
Our electrophysiology platform features leading-edge imaging technology including an advanced electroanatomic mapping ablation system. The system is designed to help providers navigate the heart by generating a three-dimensional map of the patient's cardiac structures, providing real-time visualization of the exact location and orientation of catheters in the heart.
