Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that makes treatment possible for the once “inoperable.”

How Does it Work?

  1. A biological valve is placed in a stent and then into a catheter.
  2. The catheter is inserted through the groin and threaded up to the aorta.
  3. The new aortic valve is implanted where the current valve is.
  4. Once implanted, the aortic valve begins to work immediately.

Benefits of TAVR

  • The chest cavity isn’t “cracked open” during surgery – making recovery faster and easier.
  • The valve comes in different sizes to fit each individual’s heart.
  • Offers patients with limited treatment options a better quality of life.
