Arrhythmia Center

An arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat. Arrhythmia comes in many forms — heartbeats that are too fast, too slow or too irregular. Sometimes an arrhythmia may feel like your heart is beating like a drum, a flutter, skipped heartbeats or even a quiver. Learn more about the causes and symptoms of arrhythmia.

At the Arrhythmia Center at Missouri Baptist Medical Center, we want to help you understand everything there is to know about arrhythmia, especially finding the right treatment just for you. Our goal is to keep you and your heart healthy.

Our team of electrophysiologists are cardiologists who specialize in diagnosing and treating arrhythmias.

Arrhythmia Center Testing and Treatment

The Arrhythmia Center at Missouri Baptist offers a comprehensive approach, including every type of heart diagnostic testing and arrhythmia treatment. Nationally recognized for its patient care and early adoption of innovative procedures, the center is one of only two in St. Louis to offer advanced robotic ablation technology. This cutting-edge technology allows our electrophysiologists to safely and effectively treat patients with complex arrhythmias, reaching areas of the heart that cannot be treated using traditional, manual techniques. Missouri Baptist is the second hospital in the U.S. and the first in the Midwest to treat patients with the latest robotic technology.  Robotic ablations are non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures that allow our electrophysiologists to navigate the heart with more accuracy and precision than non-robotic ablation equipment.

Electrophysiology Team

Our specialists are highly trained and hospital-based, which means our doctors are here for you every day. Our cardiac electrophysiologists often work closely with other heart doctors – cardiologists, heart surgeons and interventional cardiologists -- to care for every type of cardiac condition.
