In 2004, after remaining AFib-free following the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure, one of our patients surprised Dr. Wolf by creating this website. His intention was to help others learn more about treatment options for AFib so that they could experience the same quality of life that he had regained.
"There are so many people, including physicians, who should be educated about this procedure for atrial fibrillation. You provide not just treatment, but a real solution for patients with AFIB."
"I wanted to let Dr. Wolf know that I was approved this week for life insurance! My BP and heart rate continue to be great - NO medications at all. They had denied me life insurance a year ago - but now, 2 years post op I am approved." Charlie Fehrman
Now there are many people who have remained AFib-free for over ten years after having the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure. Click on "Testimonials" where our patients, in their own words, share their personal success stories. Let us know if you would like to discuss with one of our patients how your quality of life can improve with the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure.
On this website you will find a great amount of information on atrial fibrillation. Some of the important points include:
We began the research for this procedure in 1999.
The first patient operation was in 2003, and that patient continues to be AFib-free.
This is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure, and the average hospital stay is 2-3 days.
The procedure includes treatment of the left atrial appendage, which significantly decreases the chance of a stroke from AFIB.
Electrical testing is performed during the procedure.
- Dr. Wolf's personal experience now exceeds 1,000 cases.
The AFIB-free rate exceeds 90% for paroxysmal, 80% for persistent and 70% for long-standing persistent.
If you would like to discuss your situation by phone, Dr. Wolf returns all calls personally.
