WATCHMAN procedure

St. Mary’s is proud to offer the WATCHMAN procedure to patients living in Western Colorado and Eastern Utah. The WATCHMAN device is a one-time, catheter-based implant, that provides non-valvular atrial fibrillation patients with a lifetime of stroke risk reduction without the need for long-term oral anticoagulant therapy.

The WATCHMAN implant is suitable for a broad range of patients at an increased risk of stroke that may or may not tolerate warfarin.
