TEMPLE -

Scott and White Healthcare in Temple has announced a new alternative to open heart surgery. The procedure is known as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement.

The procedure is less invasive and is used to treat adults with severe aortic stenosis who are unable to undergo traditional open heart surgery.

According to Scott & White, up to 1.5 million people in the United States suffer from aortic stenosis, and approximately 250,000 of these patients suffer from the more severe symptomatic form.

Scott & White is the only hospital between Dallas and Austin to offer this procedure. Since the approval, Scott & White has performed 27 procedures.
