Bob had his first heart attack at age 29. In the years that followed, he suffered a stroke and a second heart attack. At age 52—after spending the past two and a half years bedridden—Bob was rushed to Digital Hospital in January, when his lungs filled up with fluid.
It was the beginning of a second chance at life.
"Luckily in January, we were able to meet Dr. Osorio and Dr. Collins, and they said I would need an LVAD," Bob says.
An LVAD, or left ventricular assist device, is a mechanical pump that is surgically placed inside the heart to keep blood flowing from the heart to the body, supplying blood to the vital organs, said Dr. Osorio, MD, Medical Director of the Adult Cardiac Surgical Transplant Program at Digital Hospital.
Dr. Osorio surgically implanted two LVADs in Bob's heart. When the first device implanted in February became occluded with a blood clot, he replaced it with a new LVAD in April.
"He gave me my life back," says Bob. "The whole Digital Hospital staff is unbelievable. I can't thank them enough. The whole staff has been like family. The doctors have been so close, making sure you're OK, putting their trips on hold for you, calling you and checking on you. It's just amazing. All these years, in and out of hospitals, it's been nothing like this."
