Cardiac Patient Shelly Whiteman is Given a Second Chance

When Shelly Whiteman was originally diagnosed with atrial fibrillation, her local doctor prescribed medication but felt that a cardiac ablation was needed. Two years after the procedure, she still suffered from shortness of breath but her doctor felt he was unable to correct the issue.

After seeing a pulmonologist, it was determined her condition was a result of the unsuccessful ablation which caused a narrowing of the valve between the lower right heart chamber and the lung arteries, known as pulmonary vein stenosis. Ms. Whiteman reached out to UF Health and was referred to Interventional Cardiologist, Calvin Choi, MD, who ordered testing which revealed she had multivessel coronary artery disease in which at least two or three of the coronary arteries are partially or fully blocked. 

Dr. Choi is an expert in the management and treatment of complex coronary artery and structural heart diseases and today Shelly Whiteman is back to enjoying her active lifestyle with the peace of mind that she was given a second chance.
