Course description

Odds are that you or someone you love and care about is facing heart surgery.

As a physician turned open heart surgery patient, I needed to prepare for this life changing event quickly.

Having the insight of a physician allowed me to minimize pain and accelerate recovery at home.

Heart surgery is scary, but with a bit of preparation and having strategies, tactics and tips makes all the difference.

I created this course to help those facing open heart surgery, their loved ones, family and friends fully prepare for all aspects of heart surgery.

By the end of this course you will have a solid grasp and how to best prepare for heart surgery.

The in-hospital section shares how you can minimize discomfort and partner with your care team for optimal results.

The final section shows you how to accelerate your recovery at home.

Take advantage of the extras section to see candid live video taken during my hospital stay at one of the worlds most renowned medical institutions.
