Choose the highest volume center in the nation for the hybrid maze
Available at only a handful of U.S. medical centers, the “hybrid” procedure combines minimally invasive surgical techniques with the latest advances in catheter ablation. The two-pronged approach, which has an up to 95% success rate, gives doctors access to both the inside and outside of the heart, helping to more completely block the erratic electrical signals that cause atrial fibrillation.
