Arrhythmia Management

The Louis & Peaches Owen Heart Hospital is the leading provider of arrhythmia management in East Texas, specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation, a leading cause of stroke. Our electrophysiology program treated the highest volume of complex procedures and is the longest-established program in the region.

Our electrophysiology lab has the most comprehensive equipment of any in the region, including two 3D mapping systems, intracardiac echocardiolography, open irrigated tip catheters for ablation, and an excimer laser. Moreover, we were the first in the state of Texas to use remote magnetic navigation technology for ablations of various arrhythmias.

Treating patients from teens to 100+ years old, we offer a number of experimental procedures available only through a leading-edge research program.

Basic facts

To pump, the heart needs an electrical system. This system contains electrical cells. These cells create and move signals that tell the heart when to beat. Some of these cells form groups called nodes. Others form pathways that carry signals through the heart.
