Patient Success Stories

Nicolas

“Nicolas was born in Peru with an aortic coaction and had an emergency surgery when he was 3 weeks old. We were advised at that time that a second procedure would be necessary. Our local pediatrician monitored him closely and was in constant contact with MCH, whom he had recommended for most of his complicated heart patients. For us being so far from the USA it was privilege to be so near to MCH. That made us feel confident about Nicolas’ recovery. When he was 3 months old, Nicolas underwent a valve procedure at MCH. We received excellent care in the ICU, which was a pretty familiar and friendly environment. This is the point when he really started thriving. The commitment of the MCH staff was great. Nicolas underwent another unexpected valve procedure at MCH in 2009. In less than 24 hours Nicolas was running again with his friends and cousins. We will always be grateful to the MCH team for giving so much care and hope to a family outside US.”
