Physician Bio

Memorial's Heart & Vascular program is thefirst in the nation to be recognized by the American College of Cardiology for its demonstrated expertise and commitment in treating patients receiving transcatheter aortic valve repair and replacement procedures. The award is based on evaluation of the staff’s ability to meet standards for multidisciplinary teams, formalized training, shared decision-making and registry performance.

The ACC’s Transcatheter Valve Certification is an external review and certification process that pairs with established national clinical databases to monitor patient safety and real-world outcomes related to transcatheter valve therapies. Participation in established national clinical databases such as the STS/ACC TVT Registry is required for hospitals interested in achieving Transcatheter Valve Certification.

Dr. Bergen is one of the first invertentional cardiologists in Lake Charles specializing in miniminally invasive valve replacement called Ttranscatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) with the Edwards SAPIEN 3 valve. This procedure is approved for use in patients with symptomatic severe aortic stenosis.
