Volunteering At St. John's
St. John’s Regional Medical Center now offers Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), which is a minimally invasive technology for the treatment of Aortic Stenosis. There is no need to travel hundreds of miles for this world-class care any longer, when it’s here close to home. Advantages of TAVR include:
This breakthrough heart procedure allows heart specialists to place a new aortic valve in the beating heart through a small tube, or catheter, usually placed in a groin artery rather than with open heart surgery. The catheter enables delivery of a collapsible replacement valve to the site of the narrowed valve. Once the new valve has been expanded, it pushes the old valve leaflets out of the way and the new valve takes over regulating blood flow. Traditional surgical valve replacement requires surgically exposing and stopping the patient’s heart through an open chest operation. The TAVR procedure offers improvement in patient health and symptoms and can extend the lives of patients with severe aortic stenosis who are either inoperable or at high risk for surgery.
St. John’s Regional Medical Center has a multidisciplinary Valve Team consisting of Surgeons, Cardiologists, Anesthesiologists, Radiology and Nursing. Each patient will be reviewed in detail and have a treatment plan tailored especially to their needs.
