Dr. Villalon to Discuss TAVRs

Posted: November 9, 2020

NorthBay Healthcare interventional cardiologist Mark Villalon, M.D., will discuss Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) and answer questions about the minimally invasive procedure during the next #DocTalkLive on Facebook.

The half-hour chat will be held at 4 p.m. via live streaming video on the NorthBay Facebook page (Facebook.com/NorthBayHealthcare).

TAVR is a procedure to treat aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the aortic valve opening, without open heart surgery. The procedure involves a half-inch incision in the leg. A catheter is inserted and guided to the heart, where it is used to replace the diseased aortic valve.
