Dr. Kavinsky told us" if anyone can save him I can." My father had a TAVR heart surgery performed by Dr. Clifford Kavinsky. He performed the surgery on the morning of June 21st. After the surgery Dr. Kavinsky and his associate came in my dad’s room where we we’re waiting. He said “EVERYTHING WENT WELL” My mom and I were so relived and happy. My mother hugged him. My dad was unconscious and we assumed he was sleeping due to the anesthesia. So we decided to allow him to get rest. So we drove home
