Stressing the importance of stress tests.
Dick showed no symptoms of a heart problem. A casual question from his primary care physician led Dick to a stress test. What that test showed was not so routine – a 99% blockage in a main artery that led to immediate bypass surgery at Oklahoma Heart Institute. His praise for the entire medical team throughout his surgery and recovery could not be more heartfelt. Neither could his encouragement to anyone 40 or older to have a stress test done. It could save their life, just like it saved his.
A second chance to stay in the game.
Something that day told Alice she wasn’t just having a bad day on the tennis court. What she didn’t know was that the symptoms she’d been experiencing — dizziness, shortness of breath, numbness in her arm — were all signs of a heart attack. After a six-bypass heart procedure and cardiac rehab at Oklahoma Heart Institute, she’s back in the game of tennis. And life.
Maestro of the heart.
Barry’s heart was beating irregularly and abnormally fast. As an orchestra conductor, he felt like his heart was a slow waltz being played in polka time. Thanks to the precision and expertise of Oklahoma Heart Institute, the irregularity is gone. And his heart is in perfect rhythm with life.
Matters of the heart.
Similar heart conditions brought Dustin and Christin together. Their remarkable beginning produced a bond made even stronger by each of them undergoing a heart procedure within the first six months of marriage. And now, thanks to Oklahoma Heart Institute, their future is even brighter.
More than a change of heart.
For Larry, like so many others, a massive heart attack was the first sign he had any heart trouble at all. The event didn’t just change his life, it changed his life’s purpose. Today, he uses his experience to help make a difference in the lives of other cardiac patients and their loved ones.
