About Arrhythmias and Heart Rhythm Care

The clinical cardiac electrophysiology (EP) service at OHSU is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of all types of heart rhythm disorders. We offer a complete range of noninvasive and invasive EP services, as well as a vigorous research program into arrhythmias.

Charles Henrikson, M.D., is the director of the electrophysiology service at OHSU. Dr. Henrikson and his staff perform the full range of EP procedures including pacemaker and defibrillator implantation; EP study and ablation for supraventricular tachycardia, atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia; laser lead extraction, and epicardial access and ablation. He has an active research program with more than 70 peer-reviewed publications.

The OHSU Arrhythmia and Heart Rhythm Clinic also regularly has clinical trials that patients may be eligible to participate in. Read more about cardiovascular clinical trials.
