The John & Sylvia Stelly Regional Heart Center at CHRISTUS St. Patrick Health System is proud to offer a less invasive treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis. With trans-catheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR), our team inserts a new valve in the diseased aortic valve using a catheter instead of opening up the chest and completely removing the diseased valve. If you or someone you love has been told you may need a new heart valve, this procedure may be right for you.
From minor bumps and bruises to strokes, heart attacks and other serious injuries or illnesses - our expert physicians and highly trained nursing staff are here to give you quick, expert medical attention.
When it comes to providing world-class, faith-based health care, every member of the team has a vital role to play, and CHRISTUS Ochsner Health Southwestern Louisiana is proud to recognize their Associates of the Year for their incredible contributions in keeping this region healthy.
CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Hospital’s John and Sylvia Stelly Heart Center has a team of cardiologists, which includes Dr. Richard Gilmore, Dr. Corey Foster, Dr. Jake LeBeau, and Dr. Thomas Mulhearn, performed the first implant of the WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC) Device on a patient with atrial fibrillation (AF) at the John and Sylvia Stelly Regional Heart Center.
