Dr. Nadeem instrumental in TAVI procedures at QEII

At the QEII, a multidisciplinary team performs a Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI) procedure to replace an aortic valve. This procedure is less invasive and allows for faster recovery times and better quality of life immediately following the procedure.

Dr. Najaf Nadeem, cardiologist in the Department of Medicine, is helping to establish this cardiac procedure at the QEII which helps their most at-risk patients whose prior option was only open-heart surgery.

As the procedure continues to prove itself and costs drop, Dr. Nadeem fully expects it to become the surgery of choice.
