WATCHMAN Procedure at Jackson Hospital

Protection against stroke. Protection against bleeds. WATCHMAN is the one-time, minimally invasive procedure that protects patients who can't remain on blood thinners.

WATCHMAN is a one-time, minimally invasive procedure for people with atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem (also known as non-valvuar AFib) who need an alternative to blood thinners.

Non-valvular Afib can mean a lifetime of blood thinners. It can also mean a lifetime of worry about issues like bleeds and falls. More than 150,000 people have left blood thinners behind with WATCHMAN.

The WATCHMAN procedure offers many advantages, including:

• Minimally invasive
• Permanent implant
• Typical procedures less than 1 hour
• 24 hour average hospital stay
