Patient Q&A: Leila's Recovery from Heart Surgery

What can patients expect after heart surgery? When can patients drive? When can patients get back to work? When can patients have sex after heart surgery? To answer these questions and more, we interviewed Leila Saeid, a robotic mitral valve repair patient. This video also features Dr. Joanna Chikwe, Leila’s surgeon and the Chair of Cardiac Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. (Video posted on October 12, 2022)
