A Lifetime of Compassionate Care: Rik’s Story

When professional musician Rik Albani was diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm and a leaky valve, he worried that he may not be able to play the trumpet again. Thanks to cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Leonard Girardi and his dedicated team at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, Albani was able to return to his lifelong passion.
