Patient changed his life to save his heart
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel interviewed a man who received a ventricular assist device, or VAD, to pump blood through his body while he awaits a heart transplant. Robert Love, MD, professor of surgery and section chief of adult cardiac surgery, performed the surgery. Claudius Mahr, DO, assistant professor of cardiology and medical director of the heart failure program, is the patient’s cardiologist.
