Heart Rhythm Center
Electrophysiologists are cardiologists who specialize in treating heart rhythm disorders. Some heart rhythm disorders may be treated by a cardiac surgeon, especially when coexisting heart problems require surgery. Our Heart Rhythm Center is the busiest university-based program in the Chicago area. We provide care for people with the most complex irregular heartbeats, consistently with excellent results.
Our team of physicians includes:
Hemal M. Nayak, MD
Director, Lead Management Program
Roderick Tung, MD
Director, Cardiac Electrophysiology
Gaurav A. Upadhyay
Director, Heart Station
In addition to providing the full range of heart rhythm disorder care services at the University of Chicago's Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine, some members of our electrophysiology team provide diagnostic and treatment services at many community hospitals.
