Meet some of our amazing patients and hear their stories:

 

 
 

Meet Lydia

 

Born with a cleft lip and palate, Lydia had a long health care journey that included many complex surgeries. Thanks to UW Health's American Family Children's Hospital, she has now "graduated" from our program and wants to share her story.

 

Meet Michael

 

During a prenatal ultrasound, Michael was diagnosed with a rare heart condition called corrected transposition of the great arteries. The pediatric heart team at UW Health's American Family Children's Hospital worked together to treat Michael. Now 6, he is an active, happy, sport-loving kid.

 

Meet Joe

 

In the immediate aftermath of heart surgery, Joe Servick followed a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation routine that involved exercise and nutrition counseling.

 

Meet Ben

 

Rushed to University Hospital with atrial tachycardia, Ben spent only one hour in the operating room and four days in the hospital total after surgeons removed his right atrial appendage.

 

Meet Lexi

 

Born deaf, Lexi came to Madison for cochlear implant surgery. The first words she heard after surgery were her mom's: "Hi, Lexi. We love you."

 

Meet Nathan

 

Referred to American Family Children's Hospital after a leukemia diagnosis, Nathan achieved "rapid remission" after a chemotherapy regimen that included home care.

 

Meet Terry

 

Recurrent chest pains led to a diagnosis of cardiomyopathy for Terry. His doctor told him to get to Madison immediately, where he received a left ventricular assist device prior to heart transplant.

 

Meet Madisen

 

A "tough cowgirl," Madisen was diagnosed at birth with aortic valve stenosis and has had multiple procedures to fix her heart valve. Using low-dose radiation imaging, our pediatric heart team helped her get back in the saddle.

 

Meet Miles

 

Diagnosed with a heart condition at birth, Miles faced numerous surgeries and treatments before he was 9 months old. Our pediatric heart team and hybrid catheterization lab has helped him get back to being a kid.
