The Snyder Center’s commitment to atrial fibrillation (AFib) goes beyond the dedicated care we provide you. Our electrophysiologists (heart rhythm specialists) also lead research to improve AFib diagnosis and treatment.
Watch: Electrophysiologist Dan Musat, MD, explains how our doctors are also researchers leading clinical trials. Our goal is to offer you the most effective AFib treatments — and improve AFib care around the world.
The Valley Approach to AFib Research
We also conduct research to compare our outcomes against other leading AFib centers. So, you can be sure you’ll receive the highest quality care for AFib at Valley.
Using Research to Improve AFib Care
New treatments have transformed AFib care in recent years. Our team has led many of these advances:
- Our research helped change the standards of care for ablation, so you can get treated sooner and avoid AFib complications.
- We were first in the tristate area to test a new type of ablation that doesn’t use heat or cold to treat AFib.
- We have studied the best techniques to use with pacemakers to keep your AFib under control.
- We tested devices like Watchman and Amulet to reduce the risk for stroke, which is higher with AFib.
More knowledge gained from trials underway at the Snyder Center could lead to even better AFib treatments in the future.
The Benefits of Clinical Trials
- You can receive promising AFib treatments before they become widely available.
- You can learn more about breakthroughs in AFib and what’s next for AFib care.
- You can be satisfied knowing you are improving AFib care for others.
If you participate in a study, we will safeguard your privacy. Our dedicated advanced practice nurse and research coordinators will guide you through the process and make it easy for you.
