Life-Changing Heart Surgery, Dr. Samuel Weinstein

Samuel Weinstein, M.D., explains the congenital heart condition of Lovely Ajuste, a Haitian teenager born with a hole between the upper chambers of her heart known as atrial septic defect (ASD).  Ms. Ajuste was diagnosed with the help of Einstein physician Mahalia Desruisseaux, M.D., who was in Haiti helping with the relief efforts following the January 2010 earthquakes. Dr. Weinstein, director of pediatric cardiothoracic surgery at Montefiore and associate professor of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at Einstein, is scheduled to perform Ms. Ajuste’s surgery on January 12, 2011, the one-year anniversary of the earthquakes. Gift of Life International is sponsoring Ms. Ajuste's trip to New York. (January 11, 2011)
