Description:

The WATCHMAN implant offers an alternative to the lifelong use of warfarin for people with atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem (also known as non-valvular atrial fibrillation). This permanent heart implant effectively reduces the risk of stroke—without the risk of bleeding that can come with the long-term use of warfarin (the most common blood thinner). What’s more, WATCHMAN can eliminate the regular blood tests and food-and-drink restrictions that come with warfarin. Warfarin is also known as Coumadin®. This cardiologist will focus on Atrial Fibrillation, Stroke Risk, and treatment options to include the Watchman.
