Robert L. Duerr, MD, FACC is an interventional cardiologist specializing in transcatheter valve replacement and repair. These procedures allow the correction of cardiac conditions without the need for open heart surgery, meaning that patients typically require a shorter hospital stay and experience a faster recovery. Dr. Duerr focuses on determining an appropriate and customized treatment plan for each patient. His goals are to restore health and help patients return to their normal lives as soon as possible.
Years ago, Dr. Duerr started the first structural heart program in the Treasure Valley and implanted the first transcatheter heart valve in Boise. He currently serves as medical director for St. Luke's Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory and Structural Heart program. He is also a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and governor-elect of their Idaho chapter.
Prior to his medical education, Dr. Duerr completed bachelor's degrees in chemistry and biology at the University of California, Berkeley. After graduating from Harvard Medical School, he trained at the University of Chicago, New York University, the University of San Diego California and the Cleveland Clinic. He recently completed a master's degree in finance at Harvard University.
In his free time, Dr. Duerr enjoys golfing, skiing, mountain biking and spending time with his family.
