The chapter contributes to the emerging understanding of expertise as social, relational, and material. The authors examine current views on expertise building in the study of an innovative medical procedure called Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI). They find that expertise occurs in many locales concurrently—each with its own trajectory and history—and that expert activity feeds upon the connections established and maintained between locales. Accordingly, expertise is not so much distributed or relational as it is trans-situated. Being an expert implies not only being socialized and becoming versed in the local way of doing things, it also implies participating in, learning to navigate, and exploiting alternative potentially competing circuits of knowledge.

Keywords:   expertise, trans-situated, inter/intra disciplinary dynamics, health care, expertise building
