Ablation Therapy

Main Message Medications might not control atrial fibrillation (AFib) and other arrythmias.

Minimally invasive cardiac ablation therapies can treat and often cure these heart rhythm problems.

Treatment With Ablation

Ablation uses heat from specialized lasers or radiowave (radiofrequency) energy toseal the source of the rhythm problem and quiet overactive nerve stimulation.

The heart’s pulmonary veins often are treated with ablation therapy because theyare the most common origin of erratic heart impulses. During the procedure, the pulmonary veins are isolated and neutralized with ablation techniques.

Our electrophysiologists – cardiologists specially trained in the heart’s electrical system – conduct ablation procedures in dedicated electrophysiology laboratories equipped with the latest technology.
