“They call me
a ‘miracle patient,’
but South Nassau
saved my life.”
NAME: CHARLES B.
AGE: 73
HOMETOWN: Lynbrook
CONDITION: Abdominal aortic aneurysm
LIFE BEFORE SURGERY: In July 2014, I collapsed
and was rushed to South Nassau’s emergency
room. While in the ER, my wife was informed
that I needed emergency surgery to repair a
ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. I was
bleeding internally and was given a 5 percent
chance of survival.
LIFE AFTER SURGERY: I spent four months in
rehabilitation. I’ve had a few setbacks since
then and it’s been a long recovery process, but
I’m getting stronger every day.
WHY CHOOSE SOUTH NASSAU? South Nassau’s
vascular team is fantastic. The surgeons and
nurses tell me I’m their miracle patient. But if
it wasn’t for their experience, teamwork and
quick decisions, I wouldn’t be alive today.

To learn more about vascular services available at South Nassau,
call 877-SOUTH-NASSAU or visit southnassau.org/vascular.
