As part of the GAMC Live Well Senior Program, Join Amir Rafie, MD will be discussing the transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) on Feb. 25 at Scholl Canyon Estates in Glendale. TAVR is a cardiac surgery that enables patients to receive a new heart valve without undergoing open heart surgery. TAVR emerged an advanced and proven alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) who have been deemed inoperable or are at high risk for conventional valve replacement. TAVR is a new kind of technology performed by expertly trained interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons. Dr. Rafie is on the TAVR team at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and is ready to share his clinical expertise and answer questions about this new procedure.
