Tell Us Your Story:

My family reminds me its been 6 years sense my event. I was on a business trip in Riverside Calif. Just did not feel good and the hotel drove to Riverside Hospital.

I walked into the hospital on my own. Net result “Acute Aortic dissection (Stanford type A)with aortic root replacement.

I now lead a very full life. I ride a my bike at a moderate pace but no big hills. I walk daily with the my dog and just enjoy life.

Fortunately the ER doctor at Riverside caught the systems and called for a Thoracic surgeon from the university of Yorba Linda. They say I just made it through the surgery and recovery was very slow.
