Annually, more than five million people visit hospitals with chest pain. Last year, Johnson County resident Dale Warman was one of them.
Three days after undergoing shoulder surgery, Warman was taken to Shawnee Mission Medical Center (SMMC) with complaints of chest pain. After examination by Cardiologist Jhulan Mukharji, MD, Warman was told he needed bypass surgery to remove a blood clot that had formed in his coronary artery. The surgery was performed by Clarke Henry, MD, and Warman spent five days at SMMC following the procedure.
