About the Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) Program at Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute 

More than three million Americans are currently living with atrial fibrillation (AFib). AFib occurs when there is a problem with your heart's electrical system. A healthy heart uses electrical impulses to pump blood through your heart and to the rest of your body. When you have AFib, these impulses become irregular, causing your heart to beat too fast and out of sync. AFib can impact your lifestyle significantly, making it difficult to perform daily tasks. Research indicates that the sooner you get treatment for AFib, the better the long-term outcome for you.

The care team at the Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Center at Orlando Health Heart & Vascular Institute focuses on treating patients with irregular heartbeats — including AFib. AFib now has more treatment options than ever before. Our experts work together to customize the most effective treatment plan for your needs. The plan may include medicine, corrective surgery, implantable devices or a combination of treatments. We have seen thousands of patients with chronic (constant) and paroxysmal (comes and goes) AFib. 

If you suffer from chronic (ongoing) AFib or AFib that is difficult to treat, we have the expertise and experience that allows us to provide innovative treatment options to treat your irregular heartbeat successfully. If you have been diagnosed with AFib, we are here to give you a second opinion and help you find a treatment solution.

Orlando Regional Medical Center is the only hospital in Central Florida and one of only two hospitals in the state of Florida to have full accreditation from the Society of Cardiovascular Patient Care for its Atrial Fibrillation Program. Our experience and knowledge, combined with a compassionate team, provides you with the highest quality care.
