Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is available at two Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute locations.
Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Texas Medical Center is ranked among the nation’s top 40 hospitals for heart care and heart surgery in U.S. News & World Report’s 2011 Top-Ranked Hospitals for Cardiology & Heart Surgery. In addition, we were the first hospital in Houston and one of the first in the U.S. to perform the TAVR procedure using the only FDA-approved device, the SAPIEN® valve.
The Heart Valve Clinic at the Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute-Southwest is the only site in Houston outside of the Texas Medical Center approved to perform the TAVR procedure. Named one of the Top 50 Heart Hospitals in the US by Thomson Reuters, the Heart & Vascular Institute – Southwest provides high-quality care with a convenient location right off the Southwest Freeway.
