I had an ablation five years ago and it was cured. Nothing since. The electrophysiologist doesn't want to see me anymore. Some ablations fail, a highly skilled EP is recommended. I found regular cardiologists aren't much help. https://a-fib.com/ is my favorite resource. Like all medical options, I think it's imperative to become knowledgeable and fully understand the options, risks, surgeon and facility. Personally, I try to only go to the best, like Mayo.
