Treating Atrial Fibrillation

Wide Variety of Treatments are Available

The exact treatment for your atrial fibrillation—or afib—depends on your unique needs, the severity of your afib, and your response to your treatment plan. Treatment ranges from medicine to noninvasive and invasive surgery. In most cases, your doctor will start with conservative treatment. But the goal is the same: to keep your symptoms in check and keep afib from affecting the quality of your life.
