  • Septal Ablation at Johns Hopkins?

    Has anyone here has a Septal Ablation at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore? I would like to hear if anyone has and what the results were.

    Dear Ralph,

    I recommend using the search function (link is above, to the right of FAQs) to look up all the ablation posts (there are a LOT).

    I don't recall anyone specifically discussing that hospital, but you can search for it, too.

        Ralph I don't know how old you are or if you have other medical problems, but the gold standard is the Myectomy, I would call and talk with someone in the office of the HCMA for advise.

            Trishab - I think you've posted elsewhere that you are having a myectomy.

            Best wishes with this - you are in great hands with Dr Cameron
