Welcome to our Patient Resource Library.

The objective of this page is to provide supplemental material to our Video Library. For each video (hosted by YouTube), we will post additional supportive material, such as graphics and summaries so that you can find what you’re looking for. We will be adding to the library each month and welcome your feedback and suggestions.
