Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy Clinic

At UMass Memorial Medical Center, specialists in cardiac resynchronization therapy help you relieve the symptoms of heart failure by coordinating your heart's contractions.

Our physicians are highly knowledgeable about the latest pacemakers and implantable cardioverter defibrillators that supply electrical impulses to the heart.

Electrophysiology (EP) Lab in Central Massachusetts

Cardiac resynchronization therapy involves the implantation of a pacemaker (often combined with a defibrillator) which is done in our Electrophysiology Lab, the most advanced of its kind in Central New England.

How You Can Benefit from Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

Recent studies have shown that early implementation of resynchronization devices can lessen the progression of heart failure. You may be a candidate for a resynchronization device if you have:

  • A low ejection fraction, which refers to the amount of blood that is pumped out of the heart during each heartbeat
  • A finding on your EKG that shows evidence of heart pumping that is not coordinated
  • Heart rhythm problems
