Biography

Dr. James Stephen Jenkins, MD, FACC, FSCAI, FSVM, is the section head of interventional and structural cardiology, director of cardiac catheterization laboratory and director of interventional cardiology research at the John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute at Ochsner Medical Center - New Orleans. He also serves as an associate professor of medicine for the University of Queensland - Ochsner Clinical School in New Orleans. He is currently board-certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in cardiovascular disease (2028), interventional cardiology (2030) and by the American Board of Vascular Medicine in endovascular intervention (2027). Throughout his career, Dr. Jenkins has continued cardiovascular translational research that began at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri, during his fellowship where he performed procedures on a swine model studying coronary artery atherosclerosis resulting in numerous publications in peer reviewed journals. Currently, he continues to collaborate with both Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center and Tulane University Health Sciences Center, participating in multiple research projects supported by both institutional and government grants. Having this depth of experience in both human and animal subjects with atherosclerotic disease (acute myocardial infarction, hypertension, peripheral artery disease and coronary artery disease) makes Dr. Jenkins well suited to diagnose and treat these disease processes in his practice at Ochsner Medical Center - New Orleans. Dr. Jenkins specializes in interventional cardiology performing coronary, peripheral and structural intervention including mitral, tricuspid, aortic, septal, left atrial appendage and carotid and venous intervention. Dr. Jenkins is also fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the Society for Vascular Medicine and the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions.

Ochsner Patient Verified Reviews

To obtain patient ratings and comments, we partner with Press Ganey, an independent patient satisfaction company that works with more than 26,000 healthcare organizations to improve the patient experience. These patient verified ratings are based on the “likelihood to recommend” physician scores on the nationally developed Medical Practice Survey. Actual top box results for this question are translated to a 1-5 scale, and the star scores are measured on that scale, with 5 being the best score.
