The Electrophysiology Center at Hackensack University Medical Center was established in 1989 by Dr. John Zimmerman. Since that time, our team of heart rhythm specialists (known as electrophysiologists) have been dedicated to providing high quality and compassionate care for the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heartbeats, also known as arrhythmias, and many other heart rhythm disorders. The electrophysiologoists at HackensackUMC have treated thousands of patients, with an outstanding record of safety and results.
Our highly experienced team comprised of doctors, nurses, and technicians, performs 2,000 procedures every year, including: implantation of permanent pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, cardiac resynchronization devices, and ablation of abnormal atrial and ventricular arrythmias, supraventricular tachycardias, and atrial fibrillation. Our active lead extraction program for removal of pacemaker and defibrillator leads utilizes the latest extraction techniques and technologies.
Our advanced facility is home to the latest in equipment and technology, including a robotic navigation system. Our expert team handles a wide range ablation cases and devices. Procedures that do not require surgery are performed in an electrophysiology lab.
