Under the care of Dr. Thurston Bauer, Joe Lee Crawford received the life-saving ECMO treatment after battling congenital heart disease and will now be able to live a full life.
Ronald Evans is out and gardening again thanks to his heart surgery. His primary care physician caught a heart murmur, and Dr. Aravind Rao performed a life saving surgery.
Dr. Bauer is continuing that tradition as a cardiac surgeon at the same hospital where his relatives made their mark, but his course to the surgery suite was a roundabout one.
Dr. Martha Rueda, a family practice physician with CHI St. Vincent in Little Rock, is a living example of the power of gratitude.
