In May 2019, Stephen Maniscalco, MD became the first Cardiothoracic Surgeon in Montgomery County to perform the TAVR procedure.
In the past, heart valve replacement was conducted through open heart surgery and required weeks if not months of recovery time. Now, TAVR offers a minimally invasive approach where a catheter is inserted into the leg or chest and guided to the heart.
Over the course of the past 16 months, Dr. Mani has successfully performed numerous TAVR procedures and continues to lead the surgical field in this and other cardiothoracic surgeries in the Montgomery County area.
