‘Born Again’ after New Heart Valve Repair Procedure

“I couldn’t stand up or walk,” shares 77-year old Clifford Stout of just how badly his health had deteriorated by the end of 2014. “I was on oxygen 24/7. I was literally dying.” With severe shortness of breath, Clifford believed he faced two major health problems: a COPD diagnosis and a leaky mitral valve that had been getting gradually worse over the last 20 years. He was hospitalized multiple times in a short three-month period for heart failure.
