Anita’s heart was failing. She was 66 years old and too weak to even pick up her newborn grandson. She resigned herself to a life of inactivity.
Then Anita went to Lehigh Valley Heart Institute and received specialized treatment from the region’s only board-certified heart failure team.
Something amazing happened.
She started getting better and stronger. It’s really no surprise that when you care for twice as many heart patients than anyone else in the region, you excel at saving lives. Just ask Anita, when she’s not too busy playing with her grandson.
Paul's heart was getting weaker. He was tired all the time and didn’t have the energy to work on his prized muscle car. A heart surgeon at another area hospital called Paul, “a walking dead man” and urged him to, “get his affairs in order.” Paul was only 50.
He went to Lehigh Valley Heart Institute and learned that he had been misdiagnosed. We performed a minimally invasive heart procedure on Paul and he went home the same day feeling better than he had in years. That kind of success is one reason why more than twice as many patients choose us for heart care over other hospitals in the region.
Just ask Paul, now that his heart is going as strong as his muscle car.
Andrea suspected that her heart was failing. Everyday tasks like making dinner, doing laundry or walking her 11-year-old daughter to the school bus left her exhausted and gasping for air.
A visit to Lehigh Valley Heart Institute confirmed that Andrea suffered from congestive heart failure. She was treated by a specialist, and then enrolled in a clinical trial to strengthen her heart muscles.
Andrea began feeling better than she had in years. It’s no wonder more than twice as many heart patients choose us over any other hospital in the region. No one else brings together top specialists, leading edge technology and groundbreaking research in a way that saves more lives.
Just ask Andrea,who now has all the energy she needs to be a busy mom.
