"Living with an ICD is about becoming a survivor and not a victim," Sears said. "While an ICD is there to prevent premature death, the patient has to learn how to trust that device and re-engage in life to trump fear."
Sears is the 2013 winner of the O. Max Gardner Award, the top faculty award from the UNC system Board of Governors for contributions to mankind. He appears regularly on "Second Opinion" on episodes covering a variety of health topics. He is the foremost author and expert on ICDs and patient quality of life.
"Dr. Sears's insight on the quality of life of cardiac and ICD patients has been imperative to the content of the six shows he has appeared on," Karen Heller, producer of "Second Opinion," said.
