Vincent's Plan - An LVAD Success Story



 

After Vincent developed weakness and shortness of breath, he came to the Maimonides Heart & Vascular Center hoping to minimize the symptoms of his congestive heart failure. Vincent's only hope was a Left Ventricular Assist Device (LVAD). 

Following Vincent's successful LVAD surgery, he got more than relief from his symptoms—he and his wife Mary are traveling the world together! According to Vincent, after years of slowing down and struggling for breath, the LVAD surgery became the beginning of a new active life. 

The Maimonides Heart & Vascular Center is renowned for breakthrough therapies that save lives. According to the federal government's analysis of all hospitals in the nation, Maimonides is among only 25 with consistently outstanding outcomes for heart attack and heart failure patients.
