UW Cardiology welcomes Locke Visiting Professor Dr. Philippe Pibarot, Professor of Medicine/Cardiology at the Institut Universitaire de Cardiologie et de Pneumologie de Quebec, on January 11 and 12. 

Dr. Pibarot specializes in valvular heart disease. He and his team have proposed and validated innovative methods for optimizing the timing and types of valve prostheses. He has also contributed to development of TAVR technology (implanting valve prostheses by catheter).

His work linking abdominal obesity and aortic stenosis has impacted our understanding of aortic stenosis as an active disease rather than a degenerative process.
