Welcome to the Department
The surgeons at Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute are world leaders in the treatment of heart and blood vessel problems. This includes heart valves, heart blood supply, and blood circulation throughout the body. One specialty is reconstruction of aortic aneurysms. Their innovative techniques have resulted in critical advancements in the repair of ballooning blood vessels- preventing rupture and significantly improving outcomes. These surgeons are faculty members at The University of Texas Medical School at Houston, training the next generation of world-class surgeons. They have published more than 200 articles in medical journals to document their work, and they travel world-wide to share their expertise.
A word from our Chair:
It has been my privilege to be trained by the best surgeons in Europe and the United States, and I enjoy continuing to perform and teach about operations that can significantly improve chances for health in the face of life-threatening disorders. I have worked with the Institute to make sure that the best facilities are available to our surgeons for state-of-the-art procedures. I encourage you to read about our doctors and procedures on this Website, and to contact us with any questions you may have.
