Aortic Valve Clinic

The Aortic Valve Clinic provides care to patients with aortic stenosis or aortic regurgitation. The goal of our team approach is to provide the best-individualized care for each patient.

Care We Provide

  • Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR or TAVI): A new aortic valve is placed into your existing aortic valve. A catheter will be used to place the new valve through your groin or under your collarbone.
  • Surgical Aortic Valve Replacement (SAVR): The aortic valve is surgically removed and a new aortic valve is placed. This procedure requires a surgical incision on your chest.
