Our Approach

The structural heart team at CHRISTUS Shreveport-Bossier Health System performs Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR), Watchman, and other innovative procedures that provide alternative options to open heart surgery. Our specialized program uses a multi-disciplinary approach that focuses on patient-centered care.

A team of cardiac specialists works collaboratively with the referring physician to ensure that each patient receives the most appropriate care for their unique case. These types of surgery may greatly reduce recovery time, pain, and risk of infection. Typically patients are able to resume normal activities with fewer restrictions much sooner than is possible with traditional open heart surgery.
