Life-Changing Heart Surgery, Dr. Mahalia Desruisseaux

Mahalia Desruisseaux, M.D., explains how she met and helped to diagnose Lovely Ajuste, a teenager with a congenital heart defect, while she was in Haiti helping with the relief efforts following the January 2010 earthquakes. Dr. Desruisseaux spearheaded the effort to bring Ms. Ajuste to Montefiore Medical Center with the help of Gift of Life International for the life-changing surgery that will correct the defect- just in time for her 16th birthday. Dr. Desruisseaux is assistant professor of medicine and of pathology at Einstein. (January 11, 2011)
