At Sentara, we have one of the nation's busiest arrhythmia programs. With decades of experience and dedication to pioneering techniques, we provide complete care. Our guidance starts with pinpointing your heart issue and continues with the most appropriate support.
Our electrophysiologists (heart rhythm specialists) are experts in diagnosing and treating all arrhythmias, including atrial fibrillation (A-fib) - a common irregular heartbeat. We diagnosis you quickly, so you can receive treatment soon and improve your heart. Learn more about our cardiac imaging and heart tests.
We may recommend medication or perform minimally invasive or traditional surgeries, depending on what's best for you:
Your heart doctor may recommend medicine that:
- Returns your irregular heartbeat to normal
- Lowers your heart rate
- Prevents blood clots
With this type of monitoring, called watchful waiting, you will undergo regularly scheduled medical imaging tests. If your condition changes enough to require additional treatment, your doctor may recommend a minimally invasive procedure or surgery.
