Meet Edie

It was the sound of a disturbing heart murmur that led Edie’s primary care physician, James Boyle, MD, to refer her to cardiologist Michael Fallert, MD, at UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute. Fortunately, the team of experts were able to quickly perform Edie’s heart valve replacement — getting her back to doing the things she loves. “Having that high level of care so close means everything,” said Edie. “I feel better than I have in a really long time.”
