LVAD... Left Ventricular Assist Device

THIS BLOG POWERED BY THE THORATEC HEARTMATE II LVAD:















PARTIAL HEART PUMP = LEFT VENTRICULAR ASSIST DEVICE = LVAD = THE HEARTMATE II



THE LVAD ALLOWED ME to go HOME and conquer my normal and newest tasks once again.



Thank you Columbia-Presbyterian... Dr Naka and his Surgery Team, LVAD Nation, Dr Bijou & Dr Bonoan, Dr Mascitelli and Dr Shulman-Marcus!!!



AND TO THE SCORES OF PHYSICIANS, NURSES, PROFESSIONALS AND PEOPLE THAT PUSHED ME ALONG THE WAY... FORWARD.



Thank You God For I Am Blessed!

I AM AN LVAD RECIPIENT... AND AN LVAD PATIENT WHEN AT MY LVAD HOSPITAL APPOINTMENTS


  • I feel well. I do not feel like a patient. In my opinion, I am not.

  • I am a recipient of an artificial (partial) organ.

I am an LVAD Recipient :-)

  • Plain and simple... for me... The LVAD Restores Life!

  • Thank you Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital / NYC and Thank You Thoratec

And the good saga continues...
