Patient of the Month: Lavondre

Published on: 01/01/2021

At three weeks old, baby Lavondre was diagnosed with Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD), which means he had a hole in the wall that separates the right and left lower chambers of the heart, and he needed surgery to survive. Thanks to the expertise of Robert Hanfland, MD and the entire team at the Nicklaus Children's Heart Institute, Lavondre is back home in St. Kitts with his family celebrating his first birthday this month!
