Free Seminar: A New Start for Every Heart

Aortic stenosis occurs when calcium builds up within the aortic valve, limiting the valve’s ability to open and close. The advancement of aortic stenosis cannot be medically reversed or stopped, but requires surgical intervention to treat. Surgical aortic valve replacement via open heart surgery is an effective treatment, but isn’t suitable for all patients.

Fortunately, the Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) procedure is available as a less invasive option for patients considered to be intermediate or high risk for open heart surgery. To learn more about aortic stenosis, as well as TAVR, please join Dr. Edward Bergen, Dr. Gregory Lugo and Dr. Christopher Thompson for their lecture.

A New Start for Every Heart is a free seminar being held Friday, June 29 at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital in the Shearman Conference Center at 12 noon. A light lunch will be provided. Reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance. Visit or call (337) 494-2936 to reserve your seat. Can’t make it? Watch us LIVEat
