Happy 100th Birthday, Dr. Helmsworth
March 31, 2015
We’d like to wish Dr. James Helmsworth a very Happy 100th Birthday! As an extremely talented surgeon at Children’s Hospital, he was part of the team that created the Heart Lung Machine, making repairs of the interior heart possible. Dr. Helmsworth performed the first open heart surgery at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital in the 1950’s. Children’s Heart Association of Cincinnati is proud to have been involved in the recruitment that brought him to Cincinnati many years ago.
