  • About

    Bio


    Dr. Lawrence Breitkreutz, Jr. was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but
    after one visit to Louisiana as a child he knew he would someday return
    to the south for good. After graduating from the University of North Carolina,
    he traveled to New Orleans, Louisiana where he earned his medical degree
    and a Master of Science in Anatomy from Tulane University School of Medicine.
    He went on to complete an internship, residencies, fellowship, research,
    and even a clinical instructorship (in general surgery and then in cardiovascular
    and thoracic surgery) at the University of Alabama.

    Dr. Breitkreutz has published research on a variety of topics including
    blood clotting, mechanics of blood flow, and heart muscle ischemia which
    has enabled him to provide the best care for his patients. He was in private
    practice in Texas for twenty years before returning to Louisiana for a
    second and final time in 2014. Certified by the American Board of Surgery
    and the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, Dr. Breitkreutz is presently
    a Clinical Adjunct Assistant Professor of Surgery at Tulane. His professional
    interests include a passion for all aspects of adult cardiothoracic surgery
    including valvular and complex coronary disease, and he is eager to serve
    the cardiothoracic surgical needs of the Baton Rouge community.
