GAMC Offers TAVR Presentation

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 emerged as an advanced and proven alternative for patients with severe aortic stenosis 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, 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.
Lunch will be provided and is free for Live Well members. A $10 donation is suggested for nonmembers. Doors open at 11:15 a.m. for those who plan to have lunch. The presentation runs from 2-3 p.m. at Scholl Canyon Estates, 1551 E. Chevy Chase Drive in Glendale. RSVP by calling (818) 409-8091.
