When Ordinary is Extraordinary – Freezing Atrial Fibrillation in the Tracks

Dr. Wilber Su knew Tim Berry was in bad shape the first time he saw him at Banner — University Medical Center Phoenix. Atrial fibrillation is a progressive disease, and Tim was already experiencing recurring episodes. Tim was also much younger than most of Dr. Su’s AFib patients and had experienced a heart attack almost a decade earlier. “Patients like Tim often don’t show up until they are in real trouble,” said Dr. Su, Banner’s director of cardiac electrophysiology. “All the data points to the fact that earlier interventions lead to better outcomes. And that’s what I want for Tim and all my patients.” Tim was initially prescribed antiarrhythmic medication to help control his AFib, but he hated the way the drugs made him feel. Dr. Su proposed a treatment option to fit Tim’s active lifestyle.
