The Cleveland Clinic, where both Jeff Green and Chris Wilcox had their cardiac surgery performed, released a short video yesterday. In it, Jeff and Chris catch-up with the clinic while in Cleveland last month to play the Cavaliers. It’s a shame this video is so short, as it gives a detailed description of the procedures both players had and is quite informative.
Dr Lars Svensson, a world renowned cardiac surgeon, performed both Green & Wilcox’ surgeries. What I found interesting was that he said their height actually was a contributing factor to their heart ailments. That, and them both being “super athletes that put a lot of strain on their hearts.” A great reminder of just how much these two guys have been through. I wish them both nothing but the best in their continued recovery.
