Doctor Wolf’s Mini-Maze procedure for atrial fibrillation has been a significant advancement in the treatment of this frustrating disease. About ten years ago, I developed sporadic atrial fibrillation and went through all the anti-arrhythmics, eventually breaking through each form of drug therapy. As a practicing anesthesiologist, I was especially frustrated by episodes of atrial fibrillation while performing long on-call hours. A cardiovascular surgeon at Lutheran Hospital referred me to Dr. Wolf.
On October 15, 2007, I underwent the Mini-Maze procedure, performed by Dr. Wolf. I was discharged two days later. Since that time, I have been free of atrial fibrillation. I have also stopped taking coumadin and amiodarone.
Dr. Wolf has made a tremendous change in my quality of life.
