The Atrial Fibrillation Clinic is part of arrhythmia services of the Cardiovascular Institute (CVI). The clinic provides advanced care for patients with atrial fibrillation, with a focus on stroke risk reduction.

Teamwork and an integrative approach are fundamental to our process. This includes close collaboration among our electrophysiologists, neurologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, all of whom are experts in the diagnosis and medical and surgical management of patients with atrial fibrillation. In addition to specialized nursing and technical teams, the clinic team comprises an electrophysiologist,  Antony Chu, MD, and a cardiothoracic surgeon, Afshin Ehsan, MD.

We offer patients with longstanding and difficult-to-treat atrial fibrillation newer techniques that combine the most effective catheter-based and surgical treatments in one procedure.

  • Electrical cardioversion
  • Catheter ablation
  • Implantation of single-lead cardiac defibrillator
  • Treatment with the LARIAT Suture Delivery Device
