Mitral Valve Repair Success Story: Jim Kelly

Sometimes patients are completely shocked when they are diagnosed with severe heart valve disease. That's right. Even though heart damage may be happening due to valvular disorders, patients can be completely asymptomatic. This is a very dangerous situation as heart valve disease is often referred to as a "Silent Killer". Watch this inspirational success story video of Jim Kelly, an asymptomatic patient with mitral valve prolapse, that is now fully recovered. Dr. Patrick McCarthy at Northwestern Medicine performed Jim's successful mitral valve repair surgery. Way to go Jim! Thanks Dr. McCarthy! (Video posted on January 20, 2015)
