Atrial Fibrillation (A-Fib) Center of Excellence

 



Atrial fibrillation (A-fib) is the most common sustained heart arrhythmia and affects around 3.4 million individuals in the United States. The symptoms and medical problems produced by atrial fibrillation and the treatment options vary significantly between individuals and may include a sudden flutter of the heart, a feeling of anxiety, shortness of breath, weakness, difficulty exercising, chest pain, sweating, dizziness or fainting.

The Norton Heart Care Atrial Fibrillation Center of Excellence focuses on the treatment of the entire spectrum of A-fib from disease onset that may require first-line therapies to more advanced cases that require approaches such as catheter ablation or cardiac surgery.

Physicians in the Norton Heart Care A-Fib Center include clinical cardiac electrophysiologists, heart surgeons, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, sleep medicine specialists, and coagulation specialists who work together to offer expert, multidisciplinary care.

Generally managed by the cardiac electrophysiologist, the patient care is coordinated to insure seamless access to the appropriate physician specialist. Patients are afforded easy access to any member of the Norton Heart Care team, and can be managed effectively between providers depending on their changing needs.
