Ask the Doc - Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Episode 5
Dr. Alan Niederman is a interventional cardiologist at Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale. Interventional cardiology uses catheter based technology to solve problems, predominantly coronary disease and aortic stenosis which includes the TAVR procedure. TAVR utilizes the catheter to deliver the valve to the heart through a small incision that allows for quicker healing. Holy Cross built a hybrid OR facility to perform many operations, including the TAVR procedure. The team performing these procedures strive to ease patients pain, enable quicker healing, and provide better quality of life.
