TAVR Screening Clinic
TAVR is a transformational technology for patients with severe aortic stenosis
(AS) and is a minimally- invasive alternative to open heart surgery for
eligible patients. The procedure is currently performed at Newark Beth
Israel Medical Center, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital and Saint
Barnabas Medical Center, RWJBarnabas Health facilities, where clinicians
are performing more TAVR procedures than any other hospital or health
care system in the state, with outcomes that far exceed national benchmarks.
Working in conjunction with the structural heart team at Newark Beth Israel
Medical Center (NBIMC), the
Jersey City Medical Center TAVR Screening Clinic works to determine patient eligibility for TAVR. The Clinic is comprised
of a multidisciplinary team of cardiac surgeons, interventional cardiologists,
radiologists, and nurse practitioners who provide the radiological, laboratory
and functional testing necessary to evaluate a patient’s suitability.
Eligible patients will undergo TAVR at NBIMC within two weeks of their
initial consultation at the Clinic.
