Baptist North Mississippi Physician and Patient Honored at Basketball Event

Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi recently participated in “Hearts & Hoops” with Ole Miss Men’s Basketball. At the event, Ole Miss Athletics recognized Dr. Thomas Flautt, electrophysiologist at Baptist North Mississippi, and his patient, Christian Leask.

An avid exerciser, Christian had been having problems with his heart racing for several years. When his symptoms began impeding his workouts, his primary care physician referred him to Dr. Flautt, who diagnosed him with atrial fibrillation and performed a catheter ablation in the electrophysiology lab at Baptist North Mississippi.

Christian said the procedure and his recovery were both quick and uncomplicated.
