Dr. Klugherz & Dr. Borge have successfully implanted the first Watchman Device in our area!
The Watchman implant is a device that is placed in a section of the heart that forms clots in patients with a rhythm disorder known as atrial fibrillation. These clots cause stroke and require the use of blood thinners.
The Watchman device is like an expandable umbrella that closes this area of the heart and allows these patients to be off of blood thinning medication.
Outside of research centers, AMS Cardiology is the first community-based hospital in this area to have access to this technology!
