Atrial Fibrillation Clinic

Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder (arrhythmia) in the United States, affecting 2.3 million people.  Each year, more than 5 million office visits are made for atrial fibrillation in this country.  Despite the increasing numbers of patients with this arrhythmia, there is growing confusion about how to treat atrial fibrillation amidst recent scientific and technological advancements.

Our arrhythmia specialists at the Metropolitan Heart and Vascular Institute are experts at educating patients and families and guiding them through an ever-expanding array of therapeutic options, including heart rhythm medications, blood thinning drugs, cardioversions (brief electrical shock treatments delivered to regularize the heart), heart rhythm devices, and catheter ablation, which can be used to cure atrial fibrillation in certain patients.  Our team of electrophysiologists, nurse practitioners, and physician’s assistants provide clinical expertise and partner with each patient to form a treatment plan that is individually tailored to suit his or her medical needs.
