Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery is surgery performed on the heart or vessels. This type of surgery often treats complications such as ischemic heart disease (coronary artery bypass grafting), congenital heart disease or valvular heart disease.
Other cardiac surgery procedures performed include valve repair, valve replacement and intraoperative ablations for patients with valve disease including mitral valve prolapse and aortic valve stenosis. Our surgeons are able to perform aortic valve repair surgeries using a minimally invasive approach, which means a quicker recovery for the patient.
CHRISTUS Cardiovascular & Thoracic Surgery surgeons offer the most advanced cardiovascular surgical techniques available in Shreveport.
We at CHRISTUS Health value your health and safety. Consistent with recommendations from the CDC and the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners, we are requiring all patients, visitors and employees to wear a mask while within our facilities. Masks are not advised for children under age 2. Please bring your mask from home with you to your appointment. Any double layered cloth mask covering your nose and mouth is appropriate for visiting our clinics as long as it does not have an exhalation valve. If you cannot come alone to your appointment, please bring no more than 1 essential visitor with you.
If you are ill with fever and cough or shortness of breath, please contact your clinician's office for instructions before coming into the clinic. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you. These measures are just a few steps we are taking to ensure to provide you and all others a safe environment.
