The minimally invasive Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure requires a team of cardiac experts for the diagnosis and successful treatment of severe aortic stenosis. The professionals that comprise the team represent years of education and experience across multiple specialties.

The specially trained TAVR team includes interventional cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, cardiac anesthesiologists, catheterization lab techs, imaging technicians, nurses, social workers, and our valve center coordinator. Of course, the two most vital members of the TAVR team are you and your doctor.
