What problem does this pathway help solve

Mark Staudt was a marathon runner until a diagnosis of atrial fibrillation stopped him from doing what he loved doing best. Two months after thinking it was hopeless of ever running again, he decided to go get treatment. He went to the Houston Methodist and got the best catheter ablation treatment. He describes all the medication and treatments as hell, but also the best thing that has ever happened because he got to run a marathon and continue to do what he loves best afterwards.
