Heart & Vascular

Ochsner offers heart procedures so revolutionary they aren't available anywhere else in the region. We are the first in the area to offer more effective ways to manage heart failure, non-surgical methods of repairing heart valves, state-of-the-art treatment for heart rhythm disorders and laser technology to remove implanted heart devices. By providing the finest patient care available anywhere, combined with technologically sophisticated diagnostic and treatment capabilities, we offer a complete and comprehensive approach to the management of cardiovascular disease. It’s no surprise people from all over the world come here for heart care.

Our flagship, the John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute (JOHVI) is a comprehensive cardiac and vascular tertiary care center, located at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans, with over 40 staff Cardiologists representing a continuum of care unmatched in the Gulf Coast region.

Through ongoing research initiatives, physician training programs and clinical trials, JOHVI continues to set the standard for diagnosis and treatment of heart disease.  We serve as a “destination center” for patients across the Gulf South with complex cardiac diseases and as a resource for patients who have been told there are no other options available to treat their heart and vascular condition.

This quality care can be accessed at multiple JOHVI locations across the Ochsner Health System including locations on the New Orleans West Bank, Uptown New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Kenner, River Parishes, North Shore, and Bayou Regions.
