How Can We Help?



TAVR- Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement

Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive procedure to replace a narrowed aortic valve that fails to open properly (aortic valve stenosis). Aortic stenosis is a progressive disease that can be life threatening and can reduce quality of life due to symptoms including shortness of breath, fatigue and swelling. TAVR replaces the diseased heart valve without removing the old, damaged one by wedging a replacement valve into the existing aortic valve’s opening.


Proven Technology, Experienced Team

The TAVR procedure has been practiced for over 10 years by our team and is FDA approved for people with severe aortic stenosis with all levels of surgical risk. Our goal is to ensure that each patient gets the intervention that best matches the patient’s specific goal. Additionally, we offer TAVR as a treatment for some patients who have disease of an existing artificial heart valve (aortic and mitral tissue valves) and congenitally diseased heart valves (bicuspid heart valves).

Unique Approach to Access

Colorado Springs Cardiology offers multiple access approaches to TAVR to meet each patient’s unique anatomical needs. Most patients receive moderate sedation and can be discharged within 24 hours of the procedure. There are minimal post procedure restrictions, so patients can return to living their best life within 1 week.

Multiple Viewpoints- One Focus

Each patient is surrounded by a specialized group of professionals: an interventional cardiologist, imaging cardiologist, cardiac nurse practitioner and cardiothoracic surgeon. We all work closely to present the intervention that best meets each patient’s needs. We help patients find solutions for all types of heart valve problems.

Care Where You Live

We coordinate care with local cardiology teams so you can feel certain that your primary care team is involved with every step of your care no matter where you live. Even if you are hours away or live rurally you can have the benefit of our experienced care team managing your heart’s problem.
