Each year, over 250,000 heart valve operations are performed for conditions including stenosis, regurgitation, prolapse and infection.
Did you know? In a recent survey, 57 percent of heart valve surgery patients stated that their expectations were "mismanaged - both before, during and after surgery."
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery was written by Adam Pick, a patient, to address these issues and to prepare you for the realities of cardiac surgery.
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery is filled with unique information and advice from over 135 patients and 45 surgeons, cardiologists and nurses. After reading this book, you will know what to expect and how to manage those expectations.
As patients and family members will tell you, heart valve surgery can be similar to a physical and emotional roller coaster. There are ups and there are downs. The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery will help you celebrate the ups and manage the downs.
Here’s a sample of the topics covered in this 200-page book include:
As Seen On:
Hello and welcome to my website! My name is Adam Pick. I live in Los Angeles, California with my wife, Robyn, and our 7-year old son, Ethan.
I was diagnosed with severe stenosis and regurgitation in my aortic valve. Days later, I learned that both my aortic and pulmonary valves would be replaced during an open heart surgery.
Like many patients, I immediately struggled with the stress, anxiety and fear of heart surgery. I was confused. I knew very little about heart valve operations. I vividly remember the frustration my family and I experienced as we frantically searched the Internet for accurate answers to the complex questions about heart valve surgery:
Little did I know, this lack of accurate and publicly available information would negatively impact my recovery as well. Like many cardiac patients, I struggled with unnecessary mental and physical problems following surgery.
For this reason, I launched a personal mission to help future patients and caregivers avoid the pitfalls of cardiac surgery. During this process, I interviewed hundreds of surgeons, cardiologists, nurses and caregivers. Most importantly, I spoke with thousands of patients to develop the thoughts, the strategies and the advice presented in The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery.
I poured my heart into this book. If you are a patient or caregiver, I encourage you to learn from my personal experiences and my research found in this practical book. Regardless of your choice, I wish you health and happiness!
