Valve Program Celebrates 600 TAVR Procedures

Baylor Jack and Jane Hamilton Heart and Vascular Hospital (BHVH) has performed 600 transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures since the program began in 2011. “As patients live longer, more with aortic stenosis will need treatment. With CMS and FDA approval of intermediate risk, more patients with aortic stenosis can be treated less invasively with TAVR,” says Robert Stoler, MD, Medical Director of Cardiology and Medical Director of Catheterization Lab.

BHVH’s Center for Valve Disorders and the team of specialists on the medical staff are involved in international and national research and clinical trials for TAVR and aortic stenosis treatments and is one of the top volume programs in the region.
