Atrial Fibrillation Clinic

By Mayo Clinic Staff

The Atrial Fibrillation Clinic is a subclinic within the Heart Rhythm Clinic. A team of nationally-known cardiologists with specialized training in the diagnosis and treatment of heart rhythm disorders (electrophysiologists) staff the Atrial Fibrillation Clinic. Atrial Fibrillation Clinic doctors work with the staff of the Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Ablation Laboratory to diagnose and treat atrial fibrillation, and lead research to develop new treatments. Every year, Mayo Clinic doctors perform more than 900 catheter ablations to treat atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm disorders.

Diagnostic testing and treatment

Doctors use advanced diagnostic testing and imaging techniques to accurately diagnose atrial fibrillation. Tests and imaging used may include intracardiac ultrasound, 3-D mapping and remote magnetic navigation (Stereotaxis). Mayo Clinic doctors develop a treatment plan for you based on the test results.

Clinic doctors have held and now hold leadership roles in the Heart Rhythm Society, a professional organization for heart rhythm disorders.
