Mike Struggles to Breathe – Diaphragm Paralysis Treated by Dr. Kaufman

Out of nowhere, Mike began to struggle with shortness of breath. From mowing the lawn to walking up stairs, he couldn’t fill his lungs with enough air. During a swim in a lake, his mysterious condition took a turn for the worse and Mike feared he would drown. It was then that Mike started a journey… a journey that brought him to Dr. Matthew Kaufman—a reconstructive plastic surgeon, specializing in diaphragm paralysis. This is Mike’s recovery story.
