Dr. Amir Rafie will discuss Transcatheter aortic valve replacement on Saturday, Feb. 25. TAVR is a cardiac surgery that enables patients to receive a new heart valve without undergoing open heart surgery.

TAVR is a new kind of technology performed by expertly trained interventional cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons, and it’s saving lives.
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.
