Union Health is proud to announce a significant milestone in its commitment to delivering high-quality cardiovascular care to the community. The health system has successfully completed its 500th Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure, solidifying its position as a leader in advanced cardiac interventions.

TAVR, a minimally invasive procedure used to treat aortic valve stenosis, has revolutionized the field of cardiology by offering patients a less invasive alternative to traditional open-heart surgery. Union Health’s achievement of 500 TAVR procedures underscores its dedication to providing patients with access to state-of-the-art treatments and exceptional outcomes.

Dr. Namburi, a service line leader of cardiology at Union Health, expressed pride in the accomplishment, stating, “Reaching the milestone of 500 TAVR procedures is a testament to the expertise and dedication of our multidisciplinary team. We are honored to have played a role in improving the lives of hundreds of patients by offering them a safe and effective treatment option for aortic valve disease.”

The success of Union Health’s TAVR program is a result of collaboration among cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, nurses and support staff who work tirelessly to ensure the highest standard of care for every patient. The institution’s commitment to innovation, excellence, and patient-centered care has earned it recognition as a trusted provider of cardiovascular services in the region.

As Union Health celebrates this milestone, it remains dedicated to advancing cardiovascular care in the Wabash Valley.
