Patient Stories

“After my heart surgery within 6 weeks I was embarking upon a 30 hour journey to the South of Brazil.”

- Patient 1

“I was back playing 18 holes on the golf course 1 week after my keyhole mitral valve repair.”

- Patient 2

7 days after having had what by any standard was “Major Surgery” I was on my way back home. Thank you Paul and the whole team.


- Patient 3

I have a near invisible scar. I was in hospital for only 5 days and once home I had help with the children for just one week and after that I was able to look after them myself.

- Patient 4

My understanding is that recovery from a “Sternotomy” can take 3-6 months yet within six weeks I was embarking upon a 30 hour journey to the South of Brazil.

- Patient 5
