Electrophysiology (EP) is the study of the heart’s electrical system. It also involves the care of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) caused by problems with that system.
At the University of Maryland Heart and Vascular Center, cardiologists who have completed additional, specialized training in their field lead our arrhythmia care. These electrophysiologists work in state-of-the-art labs, with additional care provided at hospital inpatient units and several outpatient locations.

Many medical offices treat basic arrhythmias. But only a few programs in the region offer a comprehensive range of services and fully equipped, specialized electrophysiology labs like ours.
Our labs and doctors offer:
- Care for all arrhythmias, including complex cases, related symptoms like fainting (syncope) and heart palpitations, and complications like heart failure and (post-recovery) cardiac arrest: Learn more about our arrhythmia treatment.
- Expertise: We are also one of the few centers in the region with an electrophysiologist who specializes in pediatric care. Meet our team.
- Latest diagnostic tools and tests: From heart ultrasounds to wearable monitors and heart stimulation, we offer the tools and tests needed for prompt and accurate diagnosis.
