From Louisiana to the Florida Panhandle, Ochsner is the only provider to offer this technology and is one of only 40 sites in the United States certified to implant the artificial heart. 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), heart failure affects more than 20 million people worldwide with an additional 2 million new cases diagnosed annually. The artificial heart is a device that contains the same components as a real human heart. It serves as a bridge to heart transplant for patients who suffer from severe heart failure. Ochsner has been a national leader in innovative technologies and methods for diagnosing and treating patients with heart failure. Ochsner performed the first successful heart transplant in Louisiana in 1985, and has since performed over 800 heart transplants.

"We are extremely proud to be the first cardiovascular team in the Gulf South Region to offer this technology to patients suffering from end-stage heart failure," said Hector Ventura , MD, Section Head, Heart Failure and Transplantation, Ochsner Medical Center. "The work demonstrates our commitment to cutting-edge procedures and marks another significant milestone for our organization."
