can be performed in these new areas.
The Valve Centers of Covenant Health

Breakthrough TAVR Procedure Now Available
Covenant Health is the first health system in East Tennessee, and one of only 140 nationwide, to offer this innovative procedure for replacing heart valves.
For certain patients, a heart valve will be able to be replaced endovascularly using a wire. Traditional surgery would require a large incision and dividing the breastbone. The risks and recovery time associated with TAVR are much less in comparison.

Hybrid Operating Room
A new type of treatment facility is at Parkwest Medical Center, that combines the best of a traditional surgical suite with large imaging equipment such as real time x-ray and CT in a sterile setting. The hybrid OR allows less invasive, endovascular treatment of aortic aneurysms in the chest and abdomen via catheters placed in the arteries in the groin.
