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.

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.
