Dr. Arash Salemi Featured in Health Matters

Dr. Arash Salemi, the surgical director of the Acquavella Heart Valve Center at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center recently featured in Health Matters discussing the role of Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR).

In the article, he is quoted “The exciting things about the technology are, one, that we are able to treat a wider range of patients than we otherwise would have with just open-heart surgery. We have more options for our patients. Also, it’s less invasive physiologically than open-heart surgery. Because of that, recovery is quick. You see patients rebound and go home. They’re doing what they wanted to be doing two weeks ago. They’re doing it now without a problem. It’s very gratifying.”
