Philosophy

It's great to be able to cure the problem using radiofrequency ablation, rather than just suppress arrhythmias. Patients are so glad to get off of medications, which are often expensive and cause unwanted side effects.

Practice

MidMichigan Physicians Group

Biography

Nilofar Islam, M.D., is a clinical electrophysiologist (EP), with MidMichigan Physician Group’s cardiovascular program. An EP is a cardiologist who has had additional training and education in arrhythmias. As an electrophysiologist, Dr. Islam uses specialized equipment to diagnose, and develop treatment plans for, patients with heart rhythm problems.

Dr. Islam is also board certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease.

Philosophy of Care

Arrhythmias have traditionally been treated with medications or pacemakers. Dr. Islam now uses the capabilities of the new lab to perform a procedure called radiofrequency ablation (RFA), which can cure most, if not all, types of arrhythmia by permanently removing the abnormal electrical signals in the heart.

“It’s great to be able to cure the problem using radiofrequency ablation, rather than just suppress arrhythmias. Patients are so glad to get off of medications, which are often expensive and cause unwanted side effects,” added Dr. Islam.
