We use the most advanced catheter ablation techniques to treat many heart conditions, including atrial fibrillation (AF), ventricular tachycardia (VT) and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT).
More than two million Americans suffer from atrial fibrillation (AF), a rapid, irregular heart rhythm caused by abnormal electrical signals from the atria (upper chambers of the heart).
Other common heart problems include ventricular tachycardia (VT), a fast, regular heartbeat that begins in the ventricles (lower chambers) of the heart and supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), an abnormally fast, regular heartbeat from the atria (upper chambers) of the heart that begins and ends suddenly.
At Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Oakland, our state-of-the-art technology allows us to pinpoint the cause of AF, VT and SVT. We use catheter ablation techniques to eliminate the problematic areas without damaging the heart.
