about Norwest Private Hospital Cardiac Services
Norwest Private Hospital is a leading hospital in keyhole cardiology surgery and has a well established Transcatheter Aortc Valve Implantation (TAVI) programme and now a programme for the repair of mitral valve regurgitation with the MitraClip
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) is a new and innovative approach to the treatment of severe aortic stenosis when patients are considered high risk for open heart surgery.
The multi-disciplinary heart team at Norwest Private led by Dr Peter Fahmy, Interventional & Structural Cardiologist will conduct a thorough evaluation of the patient status and make the final treatment decision for either surgical AVR (SAVR) or TAVI, which is a less invasive treatment compared to surgery. The decision will be made based on patient risk for surgery and suitability.
Transcatheter Mitral Valve Repair (TMVR) is a minimally invasive procedure that may be an option for patients who are at high risk for surgery. A clip is implanted onto the centre of the mitral valve to reduce mitral regurgitation.
