Watchman Procedure at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center: Advancing Cardiac Care for Your Heart

Welcome to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center, where we are dedicated to providing advanced cardiac care, including the revolutionary Watchman procedure. If you suffer from atrial fibrillation (AFib), commonly known as an irregular heartbeat, our Watchman procedure offers a significant reduction in the risks associated with AFib-related complications.

Understanding Watchman and Its Significance

With over 6 million Americans affected by AFib, the risk of adverse cardiac events is a serious concern. The Watchman device, about the size of a quarter, is engineered to prevent blood clots from escaping the left atrial appendage (LAA) in the heart, where they often form due to AFib.

Why Choose Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center

Expertise: Our cardiovascular specialists have extensive experience in performing the Watchman procedure, ensuring precision and optimal outcomes for our patients. Minimally Invasive: The Watchman procedure is minimally invasive, leading to faster recovery times, reduced discomfort, and shorter hospital stays compared to traditional surgeries. Personalized Care: We tailor our approach to each patient, evaluating their unique medical history to determine if the Watchman procedure is the right choice for them.

Who Can Benefit from the Watchman Procedure?

The Watchman procedure is ideal for patients with AFib who are at risk of complications and are seeking an alternative to long-term blood-thinning medications. It provides a proactive solution to safeguard heart health and improve overall quality of life.

How Watchman Is Implanted

During the procedure, a narrow tube is inserted through an opening in the groin, guiding the Watchman implant into the LAA. This process, done under general anesthesia, typically takes about an hour, and most patients can return home the next day.

Benefits of the Watchman Procedure

Minimally Invasive: Requires only a small incision and offers a quicker recovery period. Cardiac Protection: Significantly reduces the risk of complications associated with AFib. Enhanced Quality of Life: Eliminates the need for long-term blood-thinning medications and associated restrictions.
