The vascular surgical team and cardiovascular specialists of Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital are committed to reducing the occurrence of heart disease in our society. Educational seminars and heart and vascular screenings are tools our specialists use to increase public awareness of the disease.
Patients must first understand the risk factors and lifestyle choices that play a role in heart disease. Genetic factors can also increase a person's risk for heart disease. Increasing awareness of these risk factors will help patients to proactively participate in changing current trends.
We welcome community members to our "Ask the Doctor" sessions, which are held throughout the year. The sessions are an opportunity to have one–on–one conversations with leading heart and vascular surgeons at our northwest Houston campus.
Heart and vascular screenings are also available in order to help patients assess their risks and establish a plan that promotes heart health.
