FIRM-guided ablation is a promising approach to therapy that targets rotors and focal sources that drive AF and other complex heart rhythm disorders, without the use of widespread destruction of heart tissue. The treatment is FDA-cleared, and is used by the Electrophysiology group at Stanford for a wide range of patients.

The Electrophysiology service at the Stanford Arrhythmia Center has nine physicians. Our goal is to work closely with you and your primary healthcare team to ensure that you understand your condition and the best treatment options for you. We specialize in treating patients with all types of heart rhythm disorder, including atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular arrhythmias, those who require pacemaker or defibrillator device therapy, and those with inherited heart rhythm disorders. We are committed to developing new therapies for these conditions, and offering them as part of clinical trials or approved therapy for our patients.

See the Stanford Arrhythmia Center Website for more information.

For patients in other geographical locales, several other U.S. and International Centers are now performing FIRM ablation. The closest sites to you can be obtained by emailing Eve Zheng at
