Our commitment to advancing heart and vascular care is also evidenced by being recognized as Alabama’s only “high-performing” program–the highest possible rating–for transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
Highlights of our exceptional achievements include:
- Completed the nation’s first valve-in-valve procedure using a revolutionary, self-expanding TAVR system platform
- One of only a few U.S. medical centers to offer groundbreaking endovascular treatment for thoracic aortic arch disease. This helps make UAB the premier destination for cardiac care in Alabama and demonstrates our commitment to expanding aneurysm treatment options for patients not well-suited for surgery.
- Pioneers in using non-fluoroscopic imaging techniques for endovascular procedures, which reduces radiation exposure during complex aortic interventions
- Alabama’s only hospital that uses cutting-edge transcatheter technology for pulmonary valve implantation
Join us on this extraordinary journey as we continue developing innovative cardiac care. Experience the unmatched expertise and revolutionary advancements available exclusively at the UAB Cardiovascular Institute.
