Atrial fibrillation care at Mayo Clinic

  • Multidisciplinary team. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in evaluating and treating cardiovascular diseases (cardiologists) and cardiovascular surgery (cardiovascular surgeons), as well as other doctors work closely to evaluate and treat people with atrial fibrillation and other heart rhythm conditions.
  • Technology. Mayo Clinic doctors use the most current technology in atrial fibrillation and heart rhythm disorder treatment, including cardiac ablation, and in preventing strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation, including left atrial appendage closure.
  • Care that revolves around you. A detailed itinerary for appointments, tests and procedures lets you make the most of your time at the clinic. Mayo staff also runs all tests and labs at Mayo Clinic, which means tests taken in the morning can be reviewed the same afternoon. This collaborative approach means doctors can often evaluate you and develop a treatment plan within two or three days.
  • Doctors take the time to listen closely. Mayo doctors get to know you and your concerns completely, and explain your options in plain language. Doctors work with you to provide exactly the care you need.
