The University of Arizona Health Sciences Sarver Heart Center Joins the Campaign!

We are thrilled to welcome the University of Arizona Health Sciences Sarver Heart Center to the Campaign! The Sarver Heart Center was founded as the University Heart Center in 1986 with the goal of preventing and curing cardiovascular disease through the three pillars of research, education and patient care. Renamed in 1998 in recognition of generous support from the Sarver family, the Center is composed of about 135 physicians and scientists with national and international reputations. Their goal is to bring together scientists from complementary backgrounds and expertise to work collaboratively toward a future free of heart disease, vascular disease and stroke. The transcatheter aortic valve replacement program (TAVR) started at the UA Sarver Heart Center in 2012 under the leadership of Kapil Lotun, MD, an interventional cardiologist who has clinical expertise in structural heart disease and congenital heart defects. The UA Sarver Heart team includes specially trained cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistants, plus other health professionals.
