Fixing Abnormal Heart Rhythms

Did you know your heart has an electrical system? It does! And it helps your heart keep a healthy beat. When something goes wrong with a heart’s rhythm, an electrophysiologist can help. In this WLTX interview, Dr. Christopher Rowley of Lexington Cardiology at Lexington Medical Center talks about fixing abnormal heartbeats.

 

Christopher P. Rowley, MD, graduated magna cum laude from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry and earned his medical degree from Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. He then completed his internal medicine internship and residency at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina, while completing Duke’s Clinical Research Training Program. He went on to complete cardiovascular disease and electrophysiology fellowships at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.
