Garrett, a high school senior, had struggled for years with signs of ADHD. When he began high school, his grades suffered severely.

While Kathleen, was recovering from complications from blocked arteries in her lungs and bleeding in the brain, her windpipe collapsed, causing severe breathing problems. To help her breathe, physicians performed a tracheotomy, a surgically created hole through the front of her neck and into her windpipe (trachea). A “trach tube” provided an air passage for her. Kathleen turned to University Hospitals to see if more could be done. Unfortunately, the breakdown of her windpipe was so severe that the usual procedures did not apply. Instead, Dr. Nicole Maronian and Dr. Chad Zender used an innovative procedure to repair Kathleen's trachea - grafting cartilage from her ears, implanting it into her wrist for six weeks and then using it to reconstruct her windpipe. Now Kathleen no longer needs a tube in her neck to breathe and is back to living an active lifestyle. For more on our our Voice and Swallowing Center, visit http://ow.ly/B6cA4.

When an aneurysm in Elaine's kidney grew to the size of a robin's egg, doctors at UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio knew something needed to be done. Because of the location of the aneurysm, operating on the kidney inside the body was not an option. Rather than simply removing the kidney and discarding it, Dr. Vik Kashyap and Dr. Edmund Sanchez removed the kidney, repaired the aneurysm and returned the kidney to her body. The hour-long procedure, similar to a transplant operation, allowed Elaine to keep both of her kidneys and maintain her quality of life. "There was no choice because certainly you want to live," Elaine said. "You don't want to have this thing burst and there wasn't any choice to do it. So, you just have to trust. University Hospitals is a great place." "She did beautifully," said Dr. Kashyap. "I was tickled pink to see her the other day in my office and she's doing just fine."

When a stroke left her unable to speak, Jacquelyn found her voice again through song. Learn more about stroke care, http://ow.ly/vqqdT. Dr. Cathy Sila, Director of the Comprehensive Stroke Center at UH Case Medical Center, led a multidisciplinary team in Jacquelyn's care. Deforia Lane, Director of Art and Music Therapy, has worked with Jacquelyn since her stroke. "It was originally thought that music is on the right side and all the language and speech is on the left," Lane remarked. "But, when we put a person under an MRI or a PET scan, we see when music is applied, it lights up the brain on both sides. So we're able to call on areas that maybe were damaged on the left side in terms of language. We're able to re-route those neuropathways by using music." Charita Gadson, Supervisor of Speech Language Pathology, first met Jacquelyn when she had regained minimal speech. "By the time she came to me, she was using some single words," Gadson said. "She definitely was not combining words, not really using phrases or sentences, unless she was singing a song or had some melody put behind her speech." Both therapists have reason to believe that the future is bright for Jacquelyn. "Looking at where she is today compared to where she was when we first started, that's a pretty good reason to have hope that she'll continue," Gadson said. "I think the sky's the limit for her in terms of what she'll be able to accomplish and the quality of life that she'll regain." For more on music therapy at UH, visit http://ow.ly/vH6ey.

A glaucoma procedure, new to Northeast Ohio, is now being offered at UH Case Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio. The trabectome procedure is less invasive and less risky than traditional glaucoma surgery and could be a excellent alternative for select patients. Dr. Douglas Rhee, UH Chairman, Department of Ophthalmology, has been involved with minimally invasive glaucoma surgery since its onset around 2005. "For properly selected patients we can offer this and it can achieve a controlled pressure without engendering risks, inconveniences or discomforts of a trabeculectomy," said Dr. Rhee. "Furthermore, if a trabectome fails to work, we haven't lost anything. A trabeculectomy can still be performed and have the same success profile as though the trabectome had never been done." The first patient at UH Eye Institute to benefit from the trabectome was Lynette Hoehn, who has suffered from glaucoma for 14 years and cataracts for the last couple of years. "For the first time in 30 years, I don't need to wear glasses," said Hoehn. "For the first couple of days, I couldn't believe it. Things were so clear. "It's wonderful to be able to see."
