Dr. Erica Bruen spoke about the TAVR Program at SCL Health Heart & Vascular Institute -- Billings during her latest interview on Q2's Montana this Morning.
St. Vincent Healthcare was the first in the region to offer TAVR, or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement. TAVR is used to treat heart valve disease which can restrict the heart’s ability to pump blood to the rest of the body and can lead to heart failure. Our state-of-the-art Hybrid Operating Room allows us to treat aortic and mitral valve disease with TAVR so you can get back to doing what you love quickly. TAVR places a mechanical valve in the place of a damaged aortic valve and typically involves shorter recovery times than traditional open heart surgery.
