Electrophysiology specialist joins Sharon Regional staff

The Heart Institute at Sharon Regional is pleased to welcome Maninder Bedi, M.D., board certified electrophysiologist and board certified cardiologist specializing in Congestive Heart Failure and Electrophysiology.

The addition of Dr. Bedi will save Sharon Regional patients from traveling outside the Shenango Valley for specialized heart device implants and heart failure resynchronization devices with the corresponding follow-up care along with certain electrophysiology studies. The implants include pacemakers or implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICD).

Implanted pacemakers or ICDs are utilized to assist in regulating problems with the heart rate (pacemaker) or heart rhythm (ICD).

Dr. Bedi also utilizes Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT), a special pacemaker that helps restore the ability of the lower part of the heart (ventricles) to pump more effectively and relieve some of the symptoms of heart failure. Several large studies have found these devices save lives for patients who have had a heart attack or those who have low ejection fraction, a low ability to pump blood out of the heart.

Pacemakers and ICDs are placed below the collarbone through a small, three-inch incision and continuously monitor the heart’s rhythm and treat the arrhythmia (irregular heart rhythm) or, in the case of the CRT, the patient’s heart failure. The procedure is performed right here in Sharon Regional’s Cardiac Cath lab and the devices are checked right here in Sharon Regional’s Pacemaker Clinic.
