Michelle Clippard - Heart Patient

Michelle Clippard Delivered a Baby at Southeast Hospital – and Went Home with a Baby and a Pacemaker

"It's really been a blessing to get the LVAD care that I need in the southeast Missouri area. It's a convenience I never thought possible."

When diagnosed with third-degree heart block while giving birth and ventricular tachycardia four years later, Michelle Clippard put her trust in Gabe Soto, MD, a cardiologist with Cardiovascular Consultants. Dr. Soto, in collaboration with a nationally-known heart failure program at Washington University, has helped Michelle return to the life she enjoys while on a journey to a heart transplant.
