Memorial's Heart & Vascular program is the first in the nation to be recognized by the American College of Cardiology for its demonstrated expertisecertified american college of cardiology tavr badge and commitment in treating patients receiving transcatheter aortic valve repair and replacement procedures. The award is based on evaluation of the staff’s ability to meet standards for multidisciplinary teams, formalized training, shared decision-making and registry performance.

The ACC’s Transcatheter Valve Certification is an external review and certification process that pairs with established national clinical databases to monitor patient safety and real-world outcomes related to transcatheter valve therapies. Participation in established national clinical databases such as the STS/ACC TVT Registry is required for hospitals interested in achieving Transcatheter Valve Certification.

Dr. Bergen is one of the first interventional cardiologists in Lake Charles specializing in minimally invasive valve replacement called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve. This procedure is approved for use in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis.
