Comprehensive – Transformative – Vital
Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia is the preferred choice for thousands of individuals from around the world who seek renowned cardiac arrhythmia care.
The physicians at Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia provide world-class treatment for cardiac arrhythmias, from simple straightforward cases to the most complex. A disruption anywhere along the electric pathway of the heart can cause an arrhythmia in which the heart beats too slowly (fewer than 60 beats per minute) or too quickly (more than 100 beats per minute). Arrhythmias may occur in persons with healthy hearts. Persons with other forms of heart disease are more likely to develop an arrhythmia.
Care for heart rhythm disorders:
- Cardiac Arrhythmia Diagnosis
- Cardiac Arrhythmia Treatment
- Atrial Fibrillation
