Life after a cardiac event:An athlete’s story

This episode is the best! I’m not an athlete, but it spoke to me on every level in dealing with my “heart issues” of valve repair and subsequent arrhythmias! Thank you!

Pacemakers

The episode on pacemakers and related devices was outstanding. Learning about the entire team involved in an operation was nothing short of fantastic. The years of experience have created the safest environment for patients imaginable. I can’t believe anyone would go anywhere else for heart surgery.
