Updated FAQ about ‘The Bordeaux Group’ & Dr. Häissaguerre
We’ve updated the contact information in the FAQ asking about Dr. Michel Häissaguerre and the University Hospital of Bordeaux (Hôpital Cardiologique du Haut Lévêque-de Bordeaux) often referred to as ‘The Bordeaux Group’.
“I’ve heard good things about the French Bordeaux group. Didn’t Prof. Michel Häissaguerre invent catheter ablation for A-Fib? Where can I get more info about them? How much does it cost to go there?”
Prof. Häissaguerre and his colleagues invented catheter ablation for A-Fib (Pulmonary Vein Isolation) in the late 1990s. (They cured my A-Fib back in 1998. I was their first U.S. patient. Read my story.) The Cardiologic Hospital of Haut-Lévêque is still considered one of the top A-Fib centers in the world.
