Success Stories

"I travel for fun, but stay close to home for heart care". Bill

Bill’s family doctor referred him to SOMC for cardiac testing after he complained of soreness in his chest. During his test, we discovered that Bill had partial arterial blockage near one of his kidneys. A SOMC vascular surgeon placed a stent in that problem artery. In doing so, Bill’s blood pressure returned to normal and his quality of life improved.

He manages his heart symptoms with medication that allows him to keep traveling. Bill has traveled to 48 states since his surgery – but always comes home to SOMC.
