Restoring Your Heart’s Normal Rhythm

Atrial fibrillation (or afib) is the most common type of abnormal heart rhythm (or arrhythmia) in the United States. Afib alone is not life threatening. But it can be extremely bothersome and sometimes dangerous, and it’s associated with an increased risk of stroke.

"I Haven't Missed a Beat"

Watch this video and learn how pilot Jonathan Brick got a fib treatment at UVA

Jonathan's afib was so bad, his heart beat up to 250 times a minute. He tried medication, but that stopped working. He was afraid he'd have to give up his job as a commercial airline pilot.

But thanks to three catheter ablations at UVA, Jonathan's back in the cockpit and running after his four grandkids.

Watch Jonathan's story.
