Our Affiliate System

We are building one organization with affiliates in two regions. Our parent company, now known as Prisma Health, supports both affiliates with overall direction and leadership as we continue to align. We will soon share one brand across the entire organization to better reflect this. The rebranded Palmetto Health-USC Medical Group will continue to operate as a joint venture between the Midlands affiliate and the USC School of Medicine.

We are becoming Prisma Health in early 2019

Electrophysiology

And the beat goes on …

Carolina Cardiology Consultants of the Heart & Vascular Institute of Greenville Health System (GHS) features cardiac electrophysiologist (EP) physicians. EP physicians handle the branch of cardiology that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. They provide comprehensive diagnostic services and treatment options — from medications to pacemaker or ablation therapy — for patients with all heart rhythm disorders or weakness of the heart muscle.

Our providers have the skill and experience to diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions related to irregular heart rhythms.

Our diagnostic services include …

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) tests of the heart’s rhythm.
  • Remote monitoring of heart rhythms
  • Implantable heart rhythm monitors
  • Exercise Stress Testing
  • Tilt Table Testing
  • Complete Electrophysiologic Testing of the electrical conduction system of the heart.

After Your Diagnosis

Once your condition has been diagnosed, your provider will determine the best treatment plan for you. Individual treatment protocol may vary based on each individual.

Treatment options may include:

Implantation of pacemaker. Pacemakers stabilize the heart rhythm and prevent the heart rate from slowing too much.

Implantation of defibrillator. Defibrillators help treat abnormal rhythms sometimes through a shock.

Implantation of special pacemaker/defibrillators that can improve the heart’s function for patients with a weak heart.

Catheter ablation of heart tissue for all arrhythmias.

Participation in the latest drug and device protocols.
