Athens Regional Health System

Lariat Procedure

Athens Regional is proud to be the only hospital in the area that can perform an innovative treatment for abnormal heart rhythm.

The Lariat® procedure dramatically reduces the risk of stroke caused by the heart condition atrial fibrillation. It offers an alternative to treatment involving blood thinners.

Patient James Flanagan could not be happier with the amazing team of Athens Regional cardiologists, nurses and care-givers who helped reduce his risk of stroke while living life without blood thinners.
