Thoracic and 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 Trinity Clinic surgeons offer the most advanced cardiovascular surgical techniques available in Shreveport.
