The Stanford TAVR Program

The Stanford TAVR Program provides needed relief for patients with severe aortic stenosis, who are at increased risk for traditional surgical aortic valve replacement. This program employs transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR, a minimally-invasive, catheter-based therapy.

Stanford is one of only three hospitals in Northern California that performs this procedure.

The Stanford TAVR Program is offered through Stanford Interventional Cardiology, a world leader in diagnosing and treating heart conditions.
