CVT Surgical Center is devoted to providing state of the art surgical care to patients with diseases of the heart, lungs, and blood vessels. Our goal is to provide the patient with the best possible surgical, interventional or hybrid options by choosing from a wide array of treatments in which we have specific expertise. Our surgeons work collaboratively with other physicians and medical experts in Southern Louisiana to offer a multidisciplinary care approach that incorporates the latest advances in minimally invasive surgical operations.
Established in 1957 by Dr. Page Acree, the practice has grown to include 6 cardiac and 4 vascular surgeons. CVT surgical center has performed over 20,000 open heart operations and continues to provide care in the setting of the largest heart surgery practice in Louisiana. Our vascular lab performs 15,000 non-invasive tests each year to evaluate blood vessel diseases, including carotid stenosis, aneurysms, peripheral vascular disease and venous insufficiency.
