spouse of a ruptured brain aneurysm patient
“Dr. Charbel saved my wife’s life”
In January of 2003, Jim Wolfe found his wife Annette, in their basement, unconscious. According to Wolfe, first responders were quick to recognize Annette’s condition. “After a quick emergency head CT scan, I was informed by the attending emergency room physician,’ I can’t handle this, and neither can this hospital, she’s going to University of Illinois Chicago’”. At UIMC, neurosurgeon and Department Chairman, Dr. Fady Charbel, successfully treated Annette Wolfe’s ruptured aneurysm. “What more can I say about Dr. Charbel? There aren’t enough words in the English language for me to describe my feelings about him. There has never been a doubt in my mind he saved my wife’s life, as well as her mental stability,” according to Wolfe.
