Ellis Hospital offers less-invasive heart procedure

Monday, August 7, 2023

TAVR is an innovative procedure gives high-risk patients a new lease on life without open-heart surgery. With a high number of older adults in Schenectady County and surrounding region suffering from cardiovascular disease, the Ellis TAVR program is a vital service to the community.
Dr. Aakash Garg, an interventional cardiologist with St. Peter's Cardiology Associates of Schenectady, performs all TAVR procedures at Ellis, leading a stellar team of providers, nurses, technicians and others that extend beyond his department. Dr. Garg performs as many as six TAVR procedures a week.
