Providence Valve Center

Providence Valve Center remains at the forefront of treating advanced heart disease, including aortic valve stenosis, and is the highest-volume site in Oregon to offer revolutionary transaortic valve replacement (TAVR).

As the highest-volume provider of TAVR, we are excited to be a part of this transformative and lifesaving care. Providence is the only site in Oregon testing the next generation of this minimally invasive treatment. Through clinical trials, Providence is providing TAVR to a broader segment of patients with less risk.

Today's patients with valve disorders tend to be older and more medically complex, which requires an interdisciplinary, flexible approach to care. This approach, combined with our world-renowned physician team -cardiologists and heart surgeons with special expertise in valve disease, primary care physicians, pulmonologists and anesthesiologists - distinguish Providence Valve Center as the leading heart valve treatment center in Oregon.
