About our care
All pacemakers and defibrillators at Froedtert are implanted and followed by Electrophysiology specialists. This means that the physician performing the procedure has a large experience with complex device management and performs a large number of procedures. These factors are associated with a lower risk for the patient and maximize the prospects for a good long-term result. In addition to inpatient procedures and management, the Arrhythmia Service maintains a large outpatient practice for long-term management of patients with complex rhythm problems, pacemakers or defibrillators. Electrophysiologists are available for physician consultation as well as patient self-referral.
MCW Electrophysiologists manage patients from hospitals around the state and northern Illinois while on call 24 hours a day to manage emergencies. Froedtert's emergency department and Flight for Life helicopter access makes it possible to manage difficult problems quickly and successfully.
