Ochsner Health

New Orleans

Ochsner Health is seeking a BC vascular surgeon to lead our Aortic Center in New Orleans. The successful candidate will have a minimum of 3-5 years of experience with advanced endovascular aortic therapies, ideally including physician-modified devices (PMEG), in-situ laser fenestration, Z-Fen, and parallel grafting.

Ochsner Health has a large regional footprint, with 30 owned, managed, and affiliated hospitals and a comprehensive transfer center. This built-in substantial referral base and our geographic location of being >350 miles from Houston, Birmingham and Atlanta provide an exceptional opportunity to grow the existing complex aortic practice into a dominant center in the Gulf South. There is significant institutional support, including two 2nd generation Hybrid rooms and Cydar fusion imaging.

The Division of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery has a rich tradition in aortic innovation dating back to the original FDA phase II trials of multiple 1st generation devices in the late 1990 s, the initial clinical trial of Z-fen in 2005, and numerous other aortic clinic trials. We are committed to continued clinical excellence, academic achievement, and teaching. Our division of 6 full-time vascular surgeons perform the full complement of open and endovascular procedures.

For consideration, please forward CVs to Dr. W. Charles Sternbergh III, Professor and Chief, Vascular and Endovascular Surgery, at
