Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center is expanding cardiac care with the addition of electrophysiology (EP). Electrophysiology is the treatment of the heart’s electrical system and involves diagnosing abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmia). 

On December 5th, Cardiac Electrophysiologist, Dr. Arjun Gururaj with Nevada Heart and Vascular, treated the hospital’s first EP patient. 

“Electrophysiology is an exciting addition to the already incredible care that Southern Hills Hospital provides,” he said. “Offering this will expand our ability to serve even more patients throughout our community.” 

The new services will feature the latest cardiac electrophysiology equipment and tools to offer the most comprehensive arrhythmia studies including a 3D mapping system that aides the Cardiac Electrophysiologist in identifying and pinpointing irregular heart rhythms in the heart. This system allows for greater treatment and diagnoses. 

The addition of EP is part of Southern Hills Hospital’s cardiac care expansion which began in late 2021 and will be offered in the same space that currently offers diagnostic and interventional Coronary procedures and Peripheral procedures as well as Interventional Radiology and Neuro Interventional procedures.
