Featured Procedure: Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR)

For patients who are not able to have traditional open-heart surgery, a new procedure called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is now available as a treatment option. John Muir Medical Center, Concord is one of the original three hospitals in the Bay Area and less than 430 nationwide that is now performing TAVR procedures. In a TAVR procedure, the surgeon replaces the aortic valve in the heart using a catheter approach, thus eliminating the need for an open heart surgery. This remarkable new procedure provides the opportunity for a significant improvement in quality of life.
