Lipid disorder, LDL Apheresis

Doug ate well and worked out, but his cholesterol was still off the charts. He had 26 cardiac catheterizations in nine years, and he was afraid that his condition would continue to deteriorate.

Doug didn't want to settle for a life like that. That's why he chose Penn. We didn't settle either.

We literally filtered the fat out of his blood with a unique treatment called LDL Apheresis. Penn is one of the only places in the country to offer this treatment, and now Doug can live his life without fear.
