Armenian Man Thanks North Shore-LIJ Doctors for Multiple, Life-Saving Surgeries
Date:8/9/2013

Manhasset, NY (PRWEB) August 09, 2013

Three months to the day after being admitted to North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) for treatment of brain seizures, a 30-year-old Armenian man had the opportunity Thursday to thank the two local surgeons who changed his life.

“I am so grateful to you all,” Gagik Hovhannisyan of Yerevan, Armenia, said via an interpreter during a press conference held at NSUH.

“For the first time in my life, I am not having seizures,” said Mr. Hovhannisyan, with his mother by his side and his father and sister joining in from Armenia via Skype. “I can go home, drive a car, and do all the things that I could never do before. This is a miracle to me.”

Mr. Hovhannisyan was seven in 1990 when he was brought to Cohen Children’s Medical Center (then Schneider’s Children’s Hospital) under the auspices of the Russian Gift of Life and the International Rotary. His mother, Jasmin Khazarian, was told her son had been born with a congenital heart condition known as Tetralogy of Fallot – a rare condition that occurs in about five out of every 10,000 babies.

Vincent Parnell, MD surgeon-in-chief at Cohen Children’s Medical Center, performed surgery to correct that condition.

Due to his heart condition, Mr. Hovhannisyan later developed a seizure disorder as a result of an infection that developed in his brain. When he was 16, Russian Gift of Life stepped in again and had him brought back to the children’s hospital. His cardiac situation was stable, but the anti-seizure medications were not doing the job. Doctors decided he would eventually need brain surgery to remove the lesions causing the seizures.

Through it all, Mr. Ho
