Subject: Mitral Valve Repair Patient

When I found out I would need to undergo heart surgery at only 18 I was crushed. I thought it would mean the end of riding motocross for me, which is my biggest passion in life.

Being from California, my parents and I were somewhat apprehensive to travel all the way to New York when my cardiologist recommended Dr. Adams to preform the surgery. However after getting the the highest chance of a successful repair from Dr. Adams, we made the the trip to Mount Sinai.

It turned out to be the best decision of my life to date. Just four months after having my Mitral valve successfully repaired I was at the track riding again. I am extremely thankful for Dr. Adam’s and his staff, who made the whole ordeal much easier than I would have thought possible, and handled every aspect in a professional, yet caring way. I felt well taken care of from the day I arrived to the day I left the hospital.

Thank you so much for everything!
