An LVAD Saved My Life - Robert's Story
Robert Smith had lived nearly his entire life with heart problems. "One of the doctors at Creighton said I should come see the people at the med center," recalled Robert. "They introduced me to the LVAD. I thought if it's something that's going to improve my life, it's something I want to do." After nearly two years with the LVAD, Robert couldn't be happier. "It's the best thing that's happened in my life," said Robert. "Before I got it, I was always tired. I couldn't walk. Going outside, I couldn't do any yard work at all. "Now I can go outside, go to the stores and shop. My whole life has changed." "The doctors, nurses and interns at the med center are the best people," said Robert. "It was a great thing for me. I appreciate everything they've done for me and everything they're still doing for me. For more information, call 1-800-922-0000 or visit www.NebraskaMed.com/heart.
