Our Approach

With state-of-the-art minimally invasive technology, the hospital's skilled Surgical Services team provides innovative surgery procedures, including heartburn surgery, neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery, and sinus surgery. The urology surgery department introduced the region's first robotic assisted surgery system for the surgical treatment of prostate cancer. Our advanced robotic technology enables a minimally invasive approach for many complex surgical procedures.

Our surgical teams work together to ensure that the patient comes first in the surgical experience. They work closely with other specialists to provide personalized treatment and ensure that surgery is truly the best option for you. Our general surgeons are committed to providing excellent patient care and offer options ranging from traditional surgical methods to advanced minimally invasive procedures.

First in Southwest Louisiana to Offer Aortic Valve Replacement Without Open Heart Surgery

The John & Sylvia Stelly Regional Heart Center at CHRISTUS Ochsner St. Patrick Health System is proud to offer a less invasive treatment option for patients with severe aortic stenosis. With transcatheter 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.
