UCLA Cardiac Arrhythmia Center


The UCLA Cardiac Arrhythmia Center offers adult and pediatric patients the most advanced procedures for diagnosing and treating cardiac arrhythmias.

The center works closely with cardiologists in the Ahmanson-UCLA Cardiomyopathy Center, UCLA Cardiac Surgery Program and the Ahmanson-UCLA Adult Congenital Heart Disease Program. In addition to electrophysiologists, the center’s specialized team includes cardiologists, surgeons, radiologists and anesthesiologists.

“New procedures are being developed with this specialized team to use a combination of surgical and interventional procedures performed minimally invasively and simultaneously in our new hybrid operating room suite,” says Richard J. Shemin, M.D., chief of cardiothoracic surgery.
