A-Fib Center of Excellence

 

Atrial fibrillation (also called A-fib or AF) is a common rapid heart rhythm condition in which the electrical impulses that control muscle contractions in the upper chambers of the heart or atria become rapid and chaotic.

A-fib is also the most common heart rhythm disorder in the United States, with over 160,000 new cases being diagnosed each year. That’s why St.Vincent Heart Center has developed an A-fib Center of Excellence providing a total care approach for patients with atrial fibrillation from some of the best electrophysiologists in the state. In addition to providing comprehensive services, the A-fib Center of Excellence serves as a resource for referring physicians, patients, and their families to help them understand A-fib and the variety of treatment options available.
