Recommended Posts

2023 Session 7 Banner 1440x550.png

If you’ve ever considered having surgery to get rid of your afib, we think you’ll find the first Saturday afternoon session at this year’s Get in Rhythm. Stay in Rhythm.â Atrial Fibrillation Patient Conference helpful and informative!

During How Patients Decide on Minimally Invasive Surgery, Dr. Randall Wolf will share about mini maze procedures: who is a candidate, how it is done, and what to expect if you’re having it. He will also talk about whether left atrial appendage closure is included. 

Next, Dr. Ralph Damiano will cover How Patients Decide on Open Chest/Concomitant Maze Surgery. He will share when afib can be treated during other heart surgery (called a concomitant procedure) and when it is done as a standalone procedure for afib. He will also talk about who is a candidate for which, how each is done, what to expect, and whether left atrial appendage closure is included. 

Following their talks, we will have a Q&A with Drs. Wolf and Damiano.

If you’re considering surgery as part of your afib treatment plan, we hope this session will give you a clear picture of afib surgery options. This is a special opportunity to hear from two afib rockstars and get your questions answered.
