Danny Dvir has extensive experience in structural heart interventions. He is the president of the board of the Institute of Valvular Research and is internationally recognized as an expert in evaluating and treating prosthetic heart valves, including valve-in-valve therapy. Dr. Dvir was trained in internal medicine and cardiology in Israel. Subsequently, he had cardiac interventions fellowship training in in Washington D.C. and later on worked extensively and specialized in non-invasive strategies for the treatment of heart valves in the Center for Heart Valve Innovation in Vancouver, B.C.

Patient Care Philosophy

My goal is to improve patients’ health according to their own personal needs and values by introducing the most up-to-date strategies.

Today, there are tools that are significantly more advanced than those of a decade ago. I believe that all patients should have access to novel surgical techniques that enable safe, effective minimally-invasive methods to treat heart disease. I am most excited when interacting with patients and their families and being able to provide them with successful medical care.

Personal Interests

My wife and I have 4 young children, below the age of 10. Quality time with my family is my number one priority.

Clinical Interests

Cardiac catheterization; percutaneous coronary intervention (stents); structural heart interventions; transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR); treatment of failed prosthetic heart valves (TAVR valve in valve and paravalvular leakage closure).

Research Interests

Dr. Dvir has extensive experience in clinical research and lab testing of heart valves. He has published approximately 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters. His main research focus is transcatheter valve implantation and valve-in-valve therapy. He has led numerous international research collaborations and is the principal investigator of the Valve-in-Valve International Data (VIVID).
