TAVR is a new approach to treating aortic stenosis. The procedure replaces the aortic valve through a small incision in the groin. This technology enables our physicians to open arteries that were inaccessible just a few years ago. By replacing the valve via catheter through the femoral artery, it allows us to help those patients who are not candidates for open heart surgery.
