Brief Answer: You Need Electrophysiologist for RFA Detailed Answer: Dear XXXX! My Name is Dr.Suleman and I'm Resident cardiologist in Cardiac Electrophysiology Department in Cardiac Rehabilitation Centre. In our centre we frequently treat patients like you using radio frequency ablation By your history and symptoms it seems to me you are having Supra Ventricular tachycardia(SVT) or fast Atrial Fibrillation (Fast- Afib). First line of treatment is medication (not ablation). the medications are the one you are already taking. 1) Multaq to make your heart rhythm normal. 2) Pradaxa an excellent drug to make your blood thin as increase heart rate can make a clot out of your blood and can cause stroke 3) Tenormin decrease your heart rate. If these medications fails to control your heart problem then you need EPS/RFA which stands for Electrophysiology Study and Radio Frquency Ablation. so you have to visit an electrophysiologist for this procedure. In this procedure the doctor will enter a wire in your heart using a very small incision in your thigh and will ablate(fry up) the problematic part of your heart. that most of the time is less than 2mm. So dont worry its not that XXXXXXX procedure. Now you have to visit an advance hospital for that and I found following electrophysiologists who are nearest to your mentioned location Dr. Boris V. Bogomilov, MD Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology, Cardiology 3211 N Northhills Blvd Suite 110, Fayetteville, AR 72703 Dr. XXXXXXX C.
