Atrial Fibrillation (AFIB) Patient Stories

Atrial fibrillation (AFIB) is the most common irregular heart rhythm, affecting more than 2.5 million people in the United States. More than 180,000 people are diagnosed with AFIB each year. With an aging population and the increased occurrence of heart disease, these numbers are increasing. Fifteen percent of all strokes occur in people with atrial fibrillation. Until recently, limited options rendered treatment of atrial fibrillation unsatisfying. This situation has changed with the development of new techniques and procedures for optimal restoration of normal cardiac rhythm. St. Joseph's Hospital's clinical team has  extensive experience with both catheter and surgical-based ablation of atrial fibrillation, offering a complete range of therapeutic options.
