Saving lives

Loved our common backgrounds of mechanical engineering; saved my life in Oct 2002 in Bethlehem upon receiving me as a victim of ascending aortic aneurysm in an emergency situation; fully explained procedures and results of installing a St Jude's mechanical aortic valve and dacron aorta section; gives post-op hugs and is extremely caring; would love to meet again and our family will always be most grateful for my extended life.

My aortic dissection and bicuspid aortic valve were repaired by Dr. Risher in 1995 and I'm still here 2 decades later

Quid-bypass surgery in 1995. No problem since then, as Dr. Risher is an excellent surgeon.
