Your heartbeat may be irregular for several reasons, including atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias and conditions. A cardiac specialist will examine your heart and make the best treatment decision for your particular condition.
Cardiologists and surgeons may decide to insert a device that can monitor your heartbeat and correct irregular rhythms. The procedure is minor surgery typically requiring only a one to two-day stay in the hospital. In other cases, we may recommend a maze procedure, a surgery that involves creating a pattern of lesions in the upper chambers of your heart to properly channel your heart signals.
