Bradycardia care at Mayo Clinic
Your Mayo Clinic care team
Mayo Clinic cardiologists treat people with all types of heart conditions, including those with arrhythmias such as bradycardia. Mayo doctors trained in cardiovascular medicine, cardiovascular surgery and other areas collaborate as a multidisciplinary team to provide coordinated, comprehensive care. This collaborative approach means health care providers can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
Mayo Clinic care providers take the time to get to know you and work with you to provide exactly the care you need.
Advanced diagnosis and treatment
For people with bradycardia who require surgery, when possible, surgeons use minimally invasive heart surgery, which involves the use of smaller incisions. Wireless pacing may be available for certain people.
Expertise and rankings
Mayo Clinic doctors trained in heart disease (cardiologists) work with doctors trained in electrophysiology and heart surgery (cardiovascular surgeons) to evaluate and treat people with bradycardia and other heart arrhythmias at Mayo Clinic's Heart Rhythm Clinic.
Doctors trained to treat children with heart disorders (pediatric cardiologists) at Mayo Clinic's campus in Minnesota work in teams with other health care professionals to offer diagnosis and treatment options for children with bradycardia and other heart conditions.
Each year, Mayo Clinic health care providers evaluate and treat more than 10,000 people with bradycardia. Each Mayo Clinic location offers treatment for adults with bradycardia. A major focus of the Heart Rhythm Disease Program is the use of pacemakers to treat bradycardia.
