April 12, 2013- Interviewed by Steven E. Greer, MD

William O’Neill, MD, Director of the Structural Heart Disease Center at Henry Ford Hospital, discusses how the new Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedures are creating productive collaborations between cardiac surgeons and interventional cardiologists.
