general Office Information

CVT Surgical Center - General Office InformationThe history of CVT Surgical Center (formerly Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery Associates) and the development of open-heart surgery in Baton Rouge have followed parallel courses. Dr. Page W. Acree was the original member of the group. He performed the first open-heart surgery in Baton Rouge in 1957 and the first coronary artery bypass in 1971. He was also the first surgeon in the Gulf South to implant a cardiac pacemaker. Dr. Acree retired from private practice in 1983. We are very proud of Dr. Acree's accomplishments and strive to continue his legacy of care and concern for our patients.

Since it's founding by Dr. Acree, CVT Surgical Center has grown to include a staff of five cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons, and three vascular surgeons providing surgical care of heart, vascular and lung disorders.

Diagnostic Services

CVT Vascular Lab is our non-invasive laboratory. Our Registered Vascular Technologists use advanced imaging (ultrasound) and peripheral vascular evaluation equipment to perform several procedures. The procedures aid the physician in detecting, identifying and evaluating a variety of vascular conditions.

CVT Vascular Lab also provides non-invasive vascular testing at hospitals, private clinics and nursing homes in the Baton Rouge area and throughout southeast Louisiana.
