About Norwest Private Hospital Cardiac Services
Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation at Norwest Private Hospital
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.
Dr Peter Fahmy has successfully performed over 200 TAVI procedures. Norwest Private is the only private hospital in Western Sydney to be accredited to perform TAVI.
