Description

Dr. George Paul was too frail for open heart surgery but had severe aortic stenosis that was causing his heart to fail. He was one of Hartford Hospital’s first patients to undergo TAVR, a minimally invasive choice for valve replacement. Four years later, Dr. Paul is an active 97 year old who appreciates his second chance at life.
