Atrial fibrillation (AF) affects more than 2.9 million Americans. This heart-rhythm disorder is a very fast and disorganized heartbeat that often causes uncomfortable symptoms and can lead to stroke or heart failure.
AF can begin at any age, but it becomes more common as people grow older. Once thought to be a disease that could only be controlled, AF can now be cured in many patients, particularly if treated early.
Philosophy of Care
The Center for Atrial Fibrillation's innovative approach is patient focused, bringing highly trained specialists together to address the unique needs of our patients with AF. The team includes Board Certified physicians in Cardiology, Electrophysiology, and Cardiovascular/Thoracic Surgery.
The team discusses each patient and makes recommendations based on best practices and evidence-based guidelines. A comprehensive and individualized approach to the treatment of AF includes communication and coordination with the patient's primary care physician.
Established as a service in 2008, The Center for Atrial Fibrillation is an extension of the continuum of care provided by The CardioVascular Center at The Chester County Hospital. The CardioVascular Center has a clinical affiliation with Cleveland Clinic's Department of Thoracic and Cardiac Surgery.
