With the group of patients that we deal with, patients with congenital heart disease, my aspiration has always been to allow them to grow up as normally as possible. And, if you have five or six open-heart surgeries, or if you have multiple procedures, it’s tough. It’s tough coming in to have those procedures and it’s tough waiting for them, going through them and recovering from them. If we can provide newer technologies that minimize the stress both on the body, physically, and on the mind, mentally, so that children and adolescents and then adults can aspire to achieve what they always hoped they would, then I don’t think we could do any better than that.
It’s extraordinarily nice for me to be able to see patients from when they’ve been unwell, through to maybe a procedure I’ve been involved with, through to seeing them get better, and then to seeing them grow up and do the things that normal people do.
