Story
Tagline
I'm a dad, a husband, and a patient advocate for people diagnosed with heart valve disease
Introduction
One of the things I enjoy most about life is educating and empowering patients diagnosed with heart valve disorders like aortic stenosis or mitral regurgitation. In 2005, I was a double heart valve surgery patient. On a teenie-tiny budget, I started HeartValveSurgery.com to see if I could help one patient better understand the realities of cardiac surgery. Today, the website has transformed into one of the world's largest patient communities and educational resources for patients -- with a blog, a surgeon finder, a valve clinic directory, a book, an educational video library and more. It has been an incredible honor and privilege to be a part of this website and help patients through open heart procedures like aortic valve replacement. To learn more, click here.
