Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Denton Arthur Cooley (born August 22, 1920) is a pioneering American heart surgeon. He graduated in 1941 from the University of Texas, then began his medical education at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston and then went on to complete his medical degree and his surgical training at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Following his graduation he went to London to work with Lord Russell Brock. In 1969, he became the first heart surgeon to implant an artificial heart designed by Dr Domingo Liotta in a man. The patient, Haskell Karp, lived for 65 hours on an artificial heart. Cooley and his associates have performed more than 100,000 operations-more than any other group in the world. His skill as a surgeon was demonstrated as he performed numerous bloodless open-heart surgeries on Jehovah's Witness patients beginning in the early 1960s.show more
