WATCHMAN Procedure

Treat Nonvalvular AFib without blood thinners. Ask about the WATCHMAN implant.

Live life without concern for serious bleeding and reduce your risk of stroke after being diagnosed with Nonvalvular AFib. This is possible with the WATCHMAN implant device. The WATCHMAN implant is the only FDA-approved device of its kind that serves as an effective and safe alternative to doctor prescribed blood thinners.  

And the WATCHMAN procedure is now available at ThedaCare.

Is the WATCHMAN implant right for you? You may be a candidate if:

• you have atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem

• your doctor has recommended blood thinning medicines

• you take warfarin but need an alternative

• you have a history of serious bleeding while taking blood thinners

• your regular activities put you at risk for serious bleeding

• you have trouble staying within the recommended blood clotting range while taking warfarin

Talk to your ThedaCare primary care doctor for more information or to find out if you are eligible for the WATCHMAN implant.
