Ventricular tachycardia care at Mayo Clinic

Your Mayo Clinic care team

At Mayo Clinic, an integrated team of doctors trained in heart conditions (cardiologists), heart surgery (cardiovascular surgeons) and heart rhythm disorders (electrophysiologists) works together to provide care for people with tachycardia. 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.


Advanced diagnosis and treatment

Mayo Clinic specialists use advanced mapping systems, including multielectrode mapping and 3D heart mapping, to treat tachycardia and other heart rhythm disorders.

Mayo Clinic is one of the few medical centers that can perform cardiac MRI on people with existing pacemakers or implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) to more accurately diagnose and treat ventricular tachycardia.

Innovative research

Mayo Clinic researchers have developed several innovations in tachycardia care and study ways to improve tachycardia outcomes. You may be eligible to participate in a clinical trial as part of your care at Mayo Clinic. Read more about research in the Cardiovascular Research Center.
