World-Renowned Heart Surgeon O.H. Frazier to Speak at Covenant Health Events

A world-renowned heart surgeon will speak at an area hospital next week.

Dr. O.H. Frazier, a pioneer in the treatment of severe heart failure, heart transplantation, and artificial cardiac devices, will speak at two special events on Thursday and Friday at Covenant Health Systems. Frazier has performed over 1,100 heart transplants and implanted more than 700 left ventricular assist devices, more than any other surgeon in the world.

He will share career highlights at the “Heart 2 Heart” dinner this Thursday at the Lubbock Country Club, and tickets must be purchased by Monday. On Friday, Dr. Frazier will present “The Development of Left Ventricular Assist Devices: The Houston Connection” at the Knipling Education Conference Center, and tickets are $25.

To purchase tickets to either event, contact the Covenant Foundation Office at 725-6089.
