Captivating moments can make your heart skip a beat. Unfortunately, you also know that something else causes your heart to flutter — atrial fibrillation (A-Fib). Though A-Fib is treatable, it’s difficult to know what to do when its symptoms continue. Northwest Medical Center is here for you when advanced treatment options are your best chance for success. For the estimated 2.4 million Americans diagnosed with A-Fib, most are initially prescribed with low level medications or treatment procedures to help control heart rate and prevent blood clots. But when symptoms persist, it’s vital to seek an alternative treatment option that works to avoid the negative health effects that can result from untreated A-Fib, namely, stroke.
The good news is, Northwest Medical Center offers several leading-edge treatment options to help safely and easily treat A-Fib before life-threatening effects can occur. Some of these minimally invasive techniques include: Atrial Flutter (A-Flutter) Ablation, Ventricular-tachycardia (VT) Ablation and Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT) Ablation. Many individuals who have utilized these procedures enjoy quick recovery, and require no further treatment for their A-fib.
