Various techniques help heal broken hearts

Posted on February 6th, 2012 by

After Debra Gregory passed out twice the same day at her home in 2008, a friend took her to Mayo Clinic Health System-Oakridge in Osseo…Referred to the Cardiac Center at Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Gregory saw Dr. John Rozich, a cardiologist, and nurse practitioner Mona Howard. Rozich implanted a loop recorder monitor under Gregory's skin to capture information about her abnormal heart rhythm…At Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire, Drs. Thomas Carmody and Robert Wiechmann use a variation of something known as the surgical maze procedure. The cardiovascular surgeons access the heart through a small incision between the ribs rather than dividing the sternum.
