I entered U of O School of nursing just six months after Dr. Starr performed the first implant. It was an exciting time to be there, and Dr. Starr was definitely one of the "Heroes on The Hill." As a student I provided the pre-operative care for a man who was to have two valves replaced. How happy and excited we were when the patient recovered and had made history that day by becoming the first patient to receive three valve replacements.
As a new graduate I went to work at Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center where, coincidentally, Dr. Starr had attended medical school. When people found that I was from the UofO they knew about it and Dr. Starr's success.
Thank you for the work you do and the opportunity to revive some good memories.
