Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement
When you’re a patient at Providence, we provide you with leading-edge, minimally invasive procedures for heart and valve issues. TAVR has a shorter recovery period and fewer risks than open heart surgery, so you can get back to your life and everyone in it faster.
Why Choose Us for Your TAVR?
As our TAVR patient, you know you’re getting access to advanced, safe treatment that helps you recover more quickly. Here are three reasons that 2,000 patients trust us with their TAVR procedures every year:
TAVR is a procedure that replaces a diseased or damaged heart valve. A surgeon places a thin tube, called a catheter, inside your heart. This technique restores normal blood flow through the heart and improves its function, helping you feel better.
If you’re a candidate for TAVR, your cardiovascular team works with you to design the most effective treatment plan for your health goals, needs and lifestyle. And you know you’re in good hands, because we perform over 2,000 TAVR procedures each year.
Catheter-based heart and valve care techniques like TAVR reduce the need for large incisions and long hospital stays. As a result, you may have less scarring, a shorter recovery period and a longer life. You may also be able to be more physically active, so you can enjoy life to its fullest.
