Mayo Clinic doctors have extensive experience in diagnosing and treating tachycardia and treat about 11,000 people with tachycardia each year.

Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic's campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota each offer a Heart Rhythm Clinic staffed by cardiologists trained in evaluating and treating heart rhythm disorders.

Mayo Clinic has one of the largest cardiac ablation practices, and our specialists use advanced mapping systems, including multielectrode mapping and 3-D heart mapping to treat tachycardia and other heart rhythm disorders.
