Paul following 2nd open heart surgery

February 27, 2014

At 10 months old, Paul had to have it replaced – with a bigger version –another donated aorta. Dr. Jonas performed another successful open heart surgery on Paul.

“On April 29, Paulie was scheduled to return to Children’s National Medical Center for his second open-heart surgery, ten months to the day he was born. To keep up with Paulie’s growing body, Dr. Richard Jonas needed to go back in so he could swap the baby aorta he put in the previous July for a larger one.”
