For Dr. Lyle Joyce, cardiac research and transplantation are at the heart of his extensive and groundbreaking career. Dr. Joyce was on the team that implanted the first permanent artificial heart and was the first surgeon ever to use a total artificial heart in a woman - saving her life. He is world-renowned in the field of cardiac surgery and the most experienced heart transplant surgeon in Wisconsin. Dr. Joyce gets to the heart of the matter about saving lives!
