How safe are electronic cigarettes?

August 05, 2019

On the Mayo Clinic Radio podcast, Dr. Jon Ebbert, associate director of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center, talks about smoking cessation, nicotine addiction and electronic cigarettes. Also on the podcast, John Konfala, a Mayo Clinic patient, shares his story. Konfala had an aortic valve replacement done by surgeon Dr. Juan Crestanello, at Ohio State University Hospital. When Konfala needed a second surgery, he followed Dr. Crestanello to his new location — Mayo Clinic. And Skip Sturtz, another Mayo Clinic patient, shares why he chose to become an altruistic kidney donor.
