We are one of a select group of hospitals across the country to offer a promising new procedure — transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). If you are too high risk for traditional open-heart surgery, or have previously been considered inoperable, TAVR may be an option.
TAVR is an aortic valve replacement procedure where a new aortic valve is placed in the heart using a catheter — going through an incision in the leg — and does not require open-heart surgery. Please talk to your Renown cardiologist about whether TAVR is right for you.
We have been the region’s hub for heart care for decades, including performing the first open-heart surgery, angioplasty, and stent and valve replacements. Today, we continue to lead the way in heart care with our skill, expertise and technology in all things heart.
