Norman Chose UPMC for Heart Valve Surgery
Norman, a World War II veteran and adventure lover for more than 90 years, needed a new heart valve. His doctors told him that — without a valve replacement — he would only have two more years to live, at most.
After a referral to the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute, Norman underwent a minimally invasive bovine heart valve replacement. Now, he’s returned to performing in a band and playing poker with his wife, Marie.
