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.
