Surgery To Treat Atrial fibrillation (AFib)

If you have atrial fibrillation (AFib) and are looking for top specialists, Dr. Randall K. Wolf, MD, FACS, FACC, is one of the world’s foremost experts on the subject. Dr. Wolf performs surgery to treat atrial fibrillation and is the renowned inventor of the Wolf Mini-Maze — a minimally invasive surgical procedure to treat AFib. Dr. Wolf gives lectures about Afib all over the world and describes, in great detail, the methodology of his procedure.

How Does the Wolf Mini-Maze Work?

If you’re currently researching surgery to treat atrial fibrillation, you may know that many people with Afib are looking for alternatives to prolonged use of blood-thinning medication. With Dr. Wolf’s procedure that medication may be a thing of the past! In the Wolf Mini-Maze procedure, a highly sophisticated miniature camera is pushed through small incisions between the patient’s ribs (instead of separating the ribs to access the heart).

Next, highly specialized clamps are used to isolate the pulmonary veins while Dr. Wolf observes his procedures through a monitor. Patients who undergo this procedure are expected to have hospital stays of only 2-3 days as opposed to double that amount of time for traditional surgical procedures.
