Dr. Oz Performs Bypass Surgery: Part 2
A case study of Steven Hanford and his bypass surgery.
Like what Dr. Oz has advised, Steven together with his wife Ginger, stopped smoking a month before the operation.
On the day of the surgery, Ginger is quietly waiting in the hospital. In the operating room, the procedure started by getting a vein from Steven's leg. His chest is opened and his heart is stopped. The coronary arteries with blockage are bypassed using the veins from Steven's leg. As Dr. Oz's team closes Steven's chest, Dr. Oz reports back to Ginger that the operation is a success. Four days later, Steven is recovering. Dr. Oz gave Steven some advice and Steven told him that he is willing to continue his lifestyle changes like eating healthy, having exercise and never to go back in smoking.
