If your irregular heartbeat is longstanding, our doctors may recommend a hybrid-convergent ablation procedure, a combination of surgical and catheter-based ablation to treat different areas of your heart. The dual approach combines the most effective qualities of both methods into one procedure.

Overview

With hybrid-convergent ablation, our cardiac surgeons and electrophysiologists work together to identify and treat the sources of your atrial fibrillation, or irregular heart rhythm. Using a small incision and a video scope, our surgeons will find and destroy abnormal tissue on the outside of your heart, while our electrophysiologists will pinpoint and destroy abnormal tissue on the inside your heart.
