Ablation is a procedure that we can use to treat areas of the heart involved in heart rhythm problems. If you have atrial fibrillation, we will target the atria with ablation treatment. 

Information about cardiac ablation can be found on the Guy's and St Thomas' website. This information is for people using cardiac services at our hospitals.
