What We Do​

An ablation involves inserting thin, flexible wire-like tools called catheters into blood vessels in the heart through your leg.  The purpose is to cause and interrupt the abnormal rhythm's electrical pathway, and to record all this so that doctors can better treat you.

Ablations require a monitored environment and are either same day admission or overnight admission.
