Physician Resources

 

Section of Cardiology

The Section of Cardiology in the Department of Medicine at LSUHSC is led by Dr. Frank Smart. Our internationally acclaimed board certified cardiologists see a full range of cardiac and vascular problems including valvular heart disease, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, congenital heart disease, arrhythmia and syncope, and heart failure, cardiomyopathy and pulmonary hypertension.

Interventional cardiologists here at LSU are skilled in performing complex coronary, peripheral arterial, structural heart, and renal interventions, including treatment of resistant hypertension.  We also offer state of the art diagnostic non-invasive testing including 3D echocardiography, Ultrafast Cardiac CT, Cardiac MRI, and Nuclear Cardiology in addition to providing a full line of interventional and invasive diagnostics and treatments.

Our arrhythmia service offers a full spectrum of service, including invasive electrophysiologic testing and radiofrequency ablation for all arrhythmias and device based therapies for patients with heart failure, including cardiac resynchronization therapy.  Notably, we performed the first non-surgical epicardial ablation in the state of Louisiana within the past year for treatment of an atrial arrhythmia. 

We offer ACGME approved fellowship training programs in Cardiovascular Diseases, Interventional Cardiology, and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.
