See What Jimmy Kimmel Shared

On May 1, late show host Jimmy Kimmel spoke on Jimmy Kimmel Live! about a successful surgery performed by Vaughn Starnes, MD, chair and distinguished professor of surgery and H. Russell Smith Foundation Chair for Stem Cell and Cardiovascular Thoracic Research. The story received widespread coverage by media outlets, including CNN, ABC News, Newsweek, USA Today, Huff Post, The Washington Post, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Extra and Vanity Fair.

Like Jimmy, the USC Department of Surgery would also like to publicly thank Dr. Starnes for his leadership, vision and expertise in all areas of heart surgery. We are proud to call him the Chairman of the USC Department of Surgery and the Executive Director of the USC CardioVascular Thoracic Institute.

The story Jimmy shared has been viewed almost 10 million times and has touched people’s hearts. See why below.

We thank Jimmy for sharing his story.

Support the life-saving work of Dr. Starnes
