Hearts With Hope Description
Led by Dr. Juan Carlos Alejos, Chief of Cardiovascular
Intensive Care Unit for Heart Transplantation at UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, offers with a team of volunteers the most advanced open surgical and endovascular-non-surgical interventions for severe hearth problems in two locations: in Arequipa since ten years and in Lima for the last four years at the "Efrain Montesinos Cardiovascular Institute" a PAMS created advanced treatment center in Hospital Dos de Mayo. Each year this mission gives consultations to hundred of low income patients and free care to those who needed it most, reaching an average of fifty procedures every year. In USA each procedure would have an average cost of over one hundred thousand dollars. Our distinguished Pediatric Cardiologist Dr. Guilllermo Young and his wife Mrs. Marelly, RN have participated since the beginning in helping Dr. Alejos in this mission.
