Cardiologist to discuss diagnosis, new treatments for irregular heart rhythms

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- More than 2.2 million Americans have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (Afib), a condition where the heart beats irregularly at a high rate that can lead to heart failure and stroke.

Cardiologist John Moore III, MD, of the Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center will discuss new medications and approaches to diagnosis and new ground-breaking treatment options that can eliminate Afib. In addition, he will explain what happens to a heart with Afib and how cardiologists and surgeons work together at Franciscan St. Francis Heart Center to create individualized treatment plans for patients.

The free event will be Tuesday, Feb. 19 at 6:30 p.m. located at the White River Public Library, 1664 Library Blvd. in Greenwood.

Moore, a member of Franciscan Physician Network Indiana Heart Physicians, is board-certified in internal medicine and cardiovascular disease by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He specializes in clinical cardiac electrophysiology.
