Holy Moly! We’re In The New York Daily News!

By Adam Pick on February 26, 2012

Amazing!!! I just learned that our website was in the New York Daily News earlier this week!!!

In an insightful article titled, “Mitral Valve Leakage Can Lead To Heart Failure If Left Untreated”, Dr. Anelechi Anyanwu is interviewed about a very common form of heart valve disease known as mitral regurgitation, or a leaky heart valve. The article addresses several facets of leaking heart valves — anatomical issues, potential risks and treatment options.

 

Dr. Anyanwu In The Daily News Talking About HeartValveSurgery.com

 

Towards the end of the article, Dr. Anyanwu references websites that offer reliable information for patients and caregivers to consider. To my surprise, HeartValveSurgery.com is one of those resources! 🙂

Woo-Whoo! Thanks so much to Dr. Anelechi Anyanwu for his recommendation.

Keep on tickin!
Adam

Great news. Now, all you need is a spot on Dr.Oz! Seriously, he might just be interested. After all, he IS a heart surgeon.



Charles W. Taylor says on February 26th, 2012 at 3:02 pm

Congratulation Adam. Well deserved recognition of your blog and online community.

Carol, Did you know Dr. Oz is also a co-designer of the MitraClip?  it be great to have Adam on Dr. Oz show. Adam has written extensively about this non-surgerical approach to severe mitral vave regurgitaion.

‘The MitraClip builds on the work of Ottavio Alfieri, a cardiac surgeon in Milan who in the mid-1990s first proposed what became known as the Alfieri stitch. Alfieri suggested that instead of cutting out part of the valve, a surgeon could tack together the valve’s two leaflets so that they’re pulled tight when the valve is closed and are still able to let blood flow through “bow-tie” orifices on either side of the stitch when the valve opens. Mehmet Oz, a cardiac surgeon at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, who saw Alfieri present this technique at an Italian conference in 1996, later helped design the MitraClip for doing the procedure percutaneously.’

What great recognition. Think of all the people this will help. I was just at Mount Sinai for a consult with Dr. Adams, who I heard about right here on your blog. He’s an amazing man and a brilliant teacher. The first thing the surgery coordinator did after we scheduled the Big Day (May 11) was give me a copy of your book! While I can’t exactly say I’m looking forward to the surgery, I *can* say I have a lot more confidence and far fewer questions than I did a month ago.

Congratulations Adam. I know how much your book meant to my husband and myself last year. I had my Aortic Valve replaced last Sept at Cleveland Clinic. I was so blessed to have found your book so I was very prepared for the “whole” event.
It just goes to show, when someone does something for the right reason and not money and greed the blessings just keep following.
It will continue and so will all the friendships that developed thru your efforts.
I was so sorry to hear of Kelly’s passing. Keeping all in my prayers.

Sincerely,

Kathy M

Congrats Adam! You and your blog definitely deserve the recognition! I would have had a much harder time dealing with the before, during, and after my surgery if it hadn’t been for your blog and the community. Thank you for making such a difference!
