Bruce’s story – A strategic approach 

Bruce Goldstein

“I have to say, my rehabilitation team was exceptional. They helped me to understand that rehabilitation is a collective process, one that takes time — and a lot of hard work. They taught me what I could do and how best to do it. And they helped me regain my strength and walk again. I’m forever grateful to them.”

 

Heartfelt gratitude leads to the gift of life

Fifteen 15 years ago, trial attorney Bruce Goldstein underwent a successful heart transplant at New York Presbyterian Hospital. He soon returned to work and continued to litigate complex business disputes before the courts in both New Jersey and New York. Over time, however, he began to experience some complications that impaired his ability to walk. A procedure to correct the problem went well, but then an infection set in and derailed his recovery.

“It was a difficult time for me and my family. I was weak and debilitated... and my mobility was severely compromised. I knew that I needed to tackle this challenge just as I would any case — armed with information, insight and a strategy to achieve the results I wanted.”

For Bruce, that meant working with “the smart, sensitive and dedicated people” at Kessler Institute. “I have to say, my rehabilitation team was exceptional. They helped me to understand that rehabilitation is a collective process, one that takes time — and a lot of hard work. They taught me what I could do and how best to do it. And they helped me regain my strength and walk again. I’m forever grateful to them.”

There are also many individuals who are grateful to Bruce, not only for the inspiration he has provided to his fellow patients, but also for his work as chairperson of the New Jersey Sharing Network, an organization that helps provide the gift of life through organ and tissue donations.

“The journey of life can present unanticipated challenges that may seem overwhelming at first. But the health care professionals at Kessler Institute guided me through what was a very difficult time and helped me embrace the future.”
