In brief: Medicines
With medicines to control the heart rate, to prevent clots in the heart, and to convert the flutter back to a regular rhythm and keep it there.
Also at times the heart is given a shock to convert the rhythm back to normal.

In brief: Medicine
There are many medications now that treat irregular or fast heart beats.
The heart rhythm can also be treated sometimes with a brief electrical shock called cardioversion to re-establish normal rhythm. Talk to your primary doctor or a cardiologist. As far as surgery, there are specialists within cardiology called electrophyiologists that can burn areas inside the heart to treat heart disturbances.
