The Electrophysiology (EP) Lab in the Heart & Vascular Institute at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital is one of the longest running and most highly experienced programs in Northern California for the evaluation and management of heart rhythm disturbances.

Our dedicated and highly trained EP team is committed to getting the heart rhythm - and the lives of our patients back to normal through comprehensive evaluation, treatment and follow-up care. We perform a range of specialized services, including electrophysiology studies, pacemaker and defibrillator implantations, and ablation procedures.

Since its 1991 inception as the first electrophysiology lab in the North Bay, the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital EP Lab has been on the forefront of new procedures and technologies in heart rhythm management. Under the leadership of EP Lab Director Peter Chang-Sing, M.D., F.A.C.C. our program actively participates in clinical trials that often provide patients with early access to new treatment options.

Procedures for eligible patients include:

  • Curative Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) Ablation
    The EP Lab has performed ablations since 1991. We were one of the first three medical facilities in Northern California to perform Curative A-Fib Ablation, which eliminates not only severe symptoms of A-Fib, but also the need for lifelong anti-arrhythmic medication. In terms of volume, we are among the top facilities in the greater Bay Area performing this curative procedure.

  • Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)
    Also known as Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy, The EP Lab was one of the first 25 facilities in the U.S. to participate in clinical trials for Bi-ventricular ICDs. These devices are designed to treat patients with Congestive Heart Failure by re-synchronizing the heart’s pumping action. We are one of the nation’s most experienced EP facilities in the implantation of Biventricular ICDs.

  • Pacemaker Implantation

  • Tilt Table Testing
