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.
