Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement, also known as TAVR, was recently featured in a segment on Tampa’s WTSP. The spotlight included a brief interview with Margaret, a Temple Terrace resident who recently underwent TAVR surgery. Margaret tells Tammy Fields and Channel 10 News the story of her procedure and recovery and the news team diagrams and explains the innovative procedure. The procedure, offered by the team at Cardiac Surgery Associates of Tampa and Florida Hospital’s Pepin Heart Institute is so groundbreaking Dr. Oz described it as being the cardiology equivalent to putting a man on the moon.
