Why Choose Ochsner for Cardiovascular Care?
While many cardiovascular conditions can be treated and monitored close to home, when you have a complex heart or vascular condition, require a specialized heart valve treatment or transplant, or have multiple coexisting conditions or health complications, you need an advanced level of care. You want access to the latest research, treatments and clinical trials.
At the John Ochsner Heart & Vascular Institute, our experienced multidisciplinary team provides the most sophisticated cardiovascular procedures and therapies around, including less invasive surgical and nonsurgical treatments and new therapies not offered anywhere else in the Gulf South region.
Ochsner’s more than 80 highly trained cardiologists and cardiac surgeons perform more than 11,000 heart procedures and treat more than 58,000 patients each year. We are the only program in the Gulf South that can treat all four valves of the heart, and we were the first to perform a heart transplant in the region. More than 90 clinical trials offered through the John Ochsner Heart & Vascular Institute increase our patients’ access to the most advanced and effective treatment options before they are available to the public.
