Congratulations to Deborah on its 100th successful TAVR (transcatheter aortic valve replacement) procedure!
Lewis Stayton of Pemberton successfully underwent valve replacement surgery through a catheter inserted into an artery, in Deborah’s state-of-the-art hybrid operating room, under the skillful hands of surgeon Dr. Paul Burns and cardiac interventionalists Drs. Richard Kovach and Kintur Sanghvi. Mr. Stayton went home just two days after his heart valve was replaced.
Currently reserved for only higher-surgical-risk patients, Deborah’s TAVR procedure ranks among the region’s highest-volume programs, serving as a testament not only to the great outcomes at the hospital, but also to the high level of confidence patients and physicians place in Deborah’s life-saving skills. Congratulations to the entire TAVR team on this remarkable accomplishment!
