Dr. Robert Kowal, Electrophysiologist (Baylor), will speak at our November 2, 2013, Get in Rhythm, Stay in Rhythm Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference. He will talk about:
- New catheter ablation technologies, such as FIRM ablation, laser balloon ablation, and multielectrode RF ablation
- Left atrial appendage procedures that electrophysiologists do, such as Lariat and Watchman
- How to communicate with your doctor
Get a preview of the event with this video interview of Dr. Kowal in which he addresses the question, “What advice would you give a patient contemplating a catheter ablation?”
Is there an age limit for ablation?
Age limit varies by doctor, with the cutoff typically ranging from 75-80.
