Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

Why Choose Florida Hospital?

One of the most recent minimally invasive procedures approved by the FDA, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) provides new hope for patients diagnosed with inoperable aortic stenosis. Unlike traditional valve replacement, TAVR does not require open-heart surgery. It is performed through a small incision in the thigh, or sometimes between the ribs. Florida Hospital is one of the first hospitals to offer this cutting-edge procedure. See if you qualify for TAVR and avoid open heart surgery. Schedule an appointment today.

For those with severe aortic valve stenosis, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) may provide a minimally invasive treatment option. This cutting edge procedure, recently approved by the FDA, uses advanced artificial valve technology and medical tools to perform valve replacement without opening the chest or stopping the heart.

Patients who were once considered inoperable may qualify for this groundbreaking surgery. Florida Hospital is one of the first sites selected to offer transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

Using a small incision in the thigh, or sometimes between two ribs, surgeons thread a small TAVR instrument through the veins and into the heart. Then, specialized tools replace the valve while the heart continues to beat. Patients experience less recovery time and pain compared to traditional valve replacement or valve repair surgery.
