Webinar | Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement | TAVR Procedure

About the Event
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive heart procedure to replace a narrowed aortic valve that fails to open properly (aortic valve stenosis). Transcatheter aortic valve replacement is sometimes called transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI).
TAVR may be an option for people who are at intermediate or high risk of complications from surgical aortic valve replacement (open-heart surgery).
TAVR can relieve the signs and symptoms of aortic valve stenosis and may improve survival in people who have severe symptoms.
Register to this Webinar, and discover the benefits of this procedure with Dr. Niraj Parekh, Interventional Cardiologist at CSMG.
Dr. Parekh, Interventional Cardiologist at Cardiology Specialists medical Group, Director of Cardiac Cath Lab, and Director of Structural Heart Interventions and Transcatheter Valve Program at Loma Linda Medical Center Murrieta.
After his Internal Medicine residency at UC San Diego, Dr. Parekh completed his General and Interventional Cardiology fellowships at Loyola University in Chicago. He specializes in percutaneous interventions of the coronary arteries as well as non-surgical technique to repair structural heart diseases. His expertise in vascular disease also allows him to treat peripheral arterial/venous disease including non-healing ulcers and wounds of the lower extremities, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and stenosis of the carotid vessels. He is committed to treating cardiovascular disease with minimally invasive procedures that allow faster recovery and improve patient care.
