I recently been diagnosed with svt. I decided to have the ablation done. I'm extremely scared to do this. Is this a common procedure and is it safe?

In brief: Yes, usually

In experienced hands it is a very safe and successful procedure.
Volume equates to better outcomes for most procedures, meaning you want someone who has done thousands of procedures and not just a few and want it to be done at a high volume center.
