Advanced Expertise in Comprehensive Atrial Fibrillation Care

Atrial fibrillation (AFib) is an abnormal heart rhythm that is irregular and fast, and is the most common type of arrhythmia. AFib increases the risk of stroke, reduces the efficiency of the heart, and lowers quality of life for most people.

Piedmont’s Atrial Fibrillation Program offers comprehensive care and cutting edge treatment options for every patient with AFib – all under one roof. Our electrophysiology (EP) specialists have the experience and expertise to provide treatment options that help patients better manage their symptoms and feel better faster.

Our Patient-Centered Approach

When patients see a provider at our clinic, they receive a full, comprehensive evaluation of their AFib, focusing on four pillars of care:

  • Maintenance of sinus rhythm
  • Rate control
  • Stroke prevention
  • Management of risk factors

We consistently focus on treating risk factors for atrial fibrillation and reducing the risk of stroke, but also have several advanced treatment options available to patients with AFib. Our model includes collaboration with a multidisciplinary care team, and we strive to creat a long-term strategy to manage AFib that is tailored to each patient on an individual basis.
