The surgery was performed by Prof. Oztekin Oto in order to save Yusuf’s life and bridge him to a heart transplant. His recovery went well and six weeks after the implant surgery, he was switched to the Freedom® portable driver, the world’s first wearable power supply for the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart. He surpassed eight months of support with the Freedom driver on July 26.
