About the Program
On Friday, Feb. 4, ABC journalist and television personality Barbara Walters hosted a one-hour national special A Matter of Life and Death, based on her experience of having heart valve replacement surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian.
Two of our heart specialists from the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia appeared on the show – Ms. Walters' surgeon, Dr. Craig R. Smith, and her cardiologist, Dr. Jerry I. Gliklich. Among other guests were President Bill Clinton, David Letterman, Charlie Rose and Regis Philbin – all of whom had heart surgery at NewYork-Presbyterian. Watch the videos.
