Electrophysiology Fellowship 2017-08-23T12:17:13+00:00


Fellowship Program Overview

At University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System, our mission is to offer unique, advanced diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with atrial fibrillation, ventricular arrhythmias, and other electrophysiology issues. UIC faculty has been at the center of cardiac electrophysiology innovation. In collaboration with Boston Scientific the Cryo Balloon atrial fibrillation ablation technology was developed at UIC. UIC faculty is continually innovating to improve current therapeutic arrhythmia technologies and introduce new techniques and tools to make curative technologies safer and more effective.

Diagnostic procedures

• Electrophysiology study
• Tilt table test
• Event recorder
• Holter monitor
• Implantable loop recorder

Therapeutic procedures – Device implantation

• Pacemaker implantation
• Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator implantation
• Cardiac resynchronization therapy

Therapeutic procedures – ablation

• Radiofrequency ablation of ventricular arrhythmia’s
• Radiofrequency ablation of supraventricular arrhythmia’s
• Radiofrequency ablation of atrial fibrillation
• Cryo-balloon ablation of atrial fibrillation
• Non- contact mapping and intra-cardiac echocardiography

In addition to applying the most advanced techniques and technology in the EP lab, we pursue an active research program, including basic research, animal research, and human trials.

INSTRUCTIONS: In order to add a sidebar anchor:

  1. Duplicate the existing item, listed as a 1/6 text field. (Or create a 1/6 column and add a text field, modify the class so it’s exactly “additionalAnchor”).
  2. Modify the text field inside the 1/6 column. Inside there, modify the HYPERLINK so that it would go to a corresponding section with a “#” in front of it. (Example, we have a “chief” section on the page, then it would make sense to have the hyperlink go to “#chief”)
  3. Then change the hyperlink TEXT to a appropriate label.
  4. IMPORTANT: If not done already, go into that CONTAINER that corresponds to your anchor (i.e. Meet The Chiefs), and add an ID matching the anchor’s HYPERLINK WITHOUT the “#”, i.e. “chief”.
  5. (If using side bar widget box, then there’s a saved copy of a widget box COLUMN, grab it in the column library, it should 1/6 of a length of a column.)

NOTE: Order added to the sidebar is from last to first.
