Dr. Helmsworth – A Cincinnati Treasure

The Heart Institute recently shared the story of CHD survivor Joan Schuman meeting Dr. James Helmsworth 52 years after he saved her life by performing the first successful Senning operation in the U.S. 

We continue to remember Dr. Helmsworth and are thankful for the gift he gave to Joan and others like her who were born with congenital heart disease. He was a true Cincinnati treasure.
