Dr. Oz: Emergency Heart Surgery
Dr. Oz talked on his show about a patient named Pam who underwent emergency heart surgery at Dr. Oz’s hospital, New York Presbyterian. Pam was 65 and had exhaustion, jaw pain, chest pain, and shoulder pain. These are the classic signs of heart disease and she finally put the reality together after her family forced her to confront it. Dr. Oz explained to the woman that she had damage to her heart and he had to do a surgery to bring new blood vessels to the areas that are blocked off.

The woman had a heart attack before coming to the hospital. As a result, her heart function was not normal. On top of that, she was given a lot of medication to thin her blood. But because it was critical to fix her heart, Dr. Oz had to operate right then. They artificially kept her heart going. She had a lot of fat around the heart, so Dr. Oz had to pull it up.
