Dr. Sackett and his team took excellent care of me. They are simply the best. I would absolutely recommend convergent ablation to anyone with long-standing arrhythmia. This procedure gave me my life back.

There was little pain and a quick recovery. I’m glad I did the [WATCHMAN] procedure. Going off blood thinners meant my Afib could be managed without the constant risk of bleeding. The staff at Centra Heart & Vascular Institute was considerate and concerned.

TVAR Patient

I recently had the TAVR procedure done due to a reduction of blood flow through one of my heart valves. Thanks to Dr. Kanda's professionalism and expertise, I was able to go home on the same day as the operation and make a fast recovery. Now I’m back to doing whatever I want. I’m feeling good, keeping busy, and putting the valve to the test every day.
