Our Approach to Treating

Atrial Fibrillation & Atrial Flutter

At NYU Langone, our cardiovascular specialists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of atrial fibrillation (AFib) and atrial flutter in adults. These conditions cause a fast, irregular heartbeat that increases the risk of heart failure and stroke.

An invaluable part of NYU Langone’s heart programs, the Heart Rhythm Center is one of the highest-volume arrhythmia centers in the country. Each year, our specialists provide treatment and innovative procedures to more than 4,500 people who experience an irregular heartbeat.

Treatment for Atrial Fibrillation and Atrial Flutter

Our experts work closely with your cardiologist to pinpoint the cause of AFib or atrial flutter, so a normal heart rhythm can be restored. This can help to prevent stroke.

NYU Langone heart rhythm specialists provide all of your treatment and follow-up care, which includes medication management, cardioversion, catheter ablation, and the use of surveillance devices to assess how your heart responds to treatment. Our experts can also implant a left atrial appendage occlusion device to reduce your risk of stroke.
