"Adam's book is the most thorough, patient-oriented
guide on heart valve surgery. It has all the answers.
I strongly recommend it to all my patients."

Hi, my name is Adam Pick and I'm the author of The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery. I decided to write this book after undergoing double heart valve surgery myself.
During the process, I realized there was very little accurate information out there to help patients understand everything they were about to go through.
As most patients 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.
In fact... In a recent survey, most heart valve surgery patients stated that their expectations were "mismanaged before and after surgery."
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery is filled with unique information, medical diagrams and pictures developed for both patients and their caregivers. After reading this book, you will know what to expect and, more importantly, how to manage those expectations.
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery was created not just for the patient dealing with heart surgery, but for everyone in their lives.
More specifically, this guide can be extremely helpful for...
Making sure your entire family and closest friends understand all the implications of heart valve surgery is extremely important. It's hard for family members to understand the details of everything you are experiencing.
If you've previously had heart surgery or are expecting to undergo heart surgery in the future, you'll find this guide to be inspiring and uplifting. Very few people understand how scary it is to be in your situation. I do. I've been there before and can help you shed the fear, anger and anxiety you may be feeling right now. 1000's of readers gladly express how much my book has helped them cope with these inevitable feelings.
Being a caregiver can be much more mentally and emotionally draining than most people realize. It is important that you understand exactly what your loved one is going through. That way you can be there for them and truly understand what is happening. It's also extremely important that you understand the entire pre and post-surgery process to make the recovery easier for them. All of this is discussed inside the book!
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery has helped more than 50,000 patients and
caregivers in over 80 countries around the world. In that time, I've received over 1,000 unique, inspiring
and amazing testimonials from people who have read the book.
Here are just a few:
"The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery was instrumental in helping me cope with the reality of surgery. Thank you Adam!"
"Dear Adam, My Uncle Ted gave me your book a month before my surgery. It was one of the best gifts I could have ever received. Your book really helped to prepare me (as well as my family) for my surgery and recovery. After reading your book, I was also able to communicate more effectively with my surgeon and cardiologist."
"This book is a blessing for patients and their caregivers. It's filled with so much information. Plus, Adam's personal approach to telling his story was a major benefit to me and my husband."
The Patient's Guide To Heart Valve Surgery is the world's #1 most recommended book for anybody dealing with heart valve surgery - from diagnoses to recovery - in the past or future. It has struck such a chord with the medical community that even nurses, doctors and surgeons themselves are recommending it to their patients. It's been...
