    I came to see the doctor in WHE and he introduced me to the stem cell treatment. They took the stem cells from my bone marrow and fat and he injected them and it has been fabulous. I don’t have the aches and pains that I used to suffer from on a constant day to day basis. I would highly recommend it to anybody who’s looking for a remedy to their back pain and their aching joints.

    WHE replaced both my hips and the result is nothing short of miraculous. I was back home after surgery in 2 days. Other than a small 3 inch scar, you would never know I had hip surgery. I was free of pain from my first day home. The prescribed physical therapy returned me to full mobility within just a few weeks and allowed me to return to all of my pre-surgery sports and activities.

    After my bypass procedure, I didn’t feel a thing. I remember asking the nurse if they had done anything.

The hospital offers advanced diagnostic technology, cardiac rehabilitation, and more.

    I traveled to WHE who performed a minimally invasive mitral valve repair, making a two-inch incision through my right side and successfully fixing the leak. I was walking on my own the next day and left the hospital just two days later. It was such a positive experience. Everyone from the compassionate nurses and technicians who cared for me, to the welcoming environment.
