Dr. Joseph Ricotta Named 2020 TCAR Clinical Operator of Experience
This honor is awarded by Silk Road Medical which manufactures the TCAR device for patient procedures and is given to select physicians throughout the country who have demonstrated clinical excellence and superior quality outcomes using TCAR to treat patients with carotid artery disease. TCAR is a proven, minimally invasive and safe approach for high surgical risk patients to reduce their risk of stroke.
“I am humbled and honored to be named as a Clinical Operator of Experience for improving treatment outcomes of carotid artery disease using the TCAR procedure”, said Dr. Joseph Ricotta of Delray Medical Center. “TCAR is an important new option in the fight against stroke and is particularly suited for the large patient population we care for who are at higher risk of complications from carotid surgery due to age, anatomy, or other medical conditions. This honor adds to the stellar reputation that Delray Medical Center already enjoys for treating patients with carotid disease and stroke having been selected as a “TCAR National Center of Excellence” every year since 2018, the only one of its kind in South Florida.”
