Adult Congenital Heart Disease: Mike's story

It all happened in an instant. One day. Mike came home from a business trip feeling fine. The next morning, he could barely catch his breath. He decided to get checked out at his local urgent care and was quickly referred to the Adult Congenital Heart Disease (ACHD) Program at the Herma Heart Institute. He was diagnosed with bicuspid aortic valve disease, a type of congenital heart disease, and he needed surgery. Prior to his heart valve surgery with Michael Mitchell, MD, cardiothoracic surgeon, Mike was an exercise enthusiast and he was concerned about his ability to return to his rigorous exercise routine. Watch Mike's story and discover how the ACHD Program helped him not only get back to his old routine, but set even higher health goals.
