Patient Care - Endovascular Center

Houston Methodist Hospital Endovascular department was established in response to the growing class of minimally invasive treatments of vascular and non-vascular disease. Through bringing together experts in NeuroRadiology, Interventional Radiology and Orthopedics with state-of-the-art technology, the Endovascular Center offers the best patient care in a single treatment facility.

The Endovascular Center has a 33-bed admission/observation/discharge (AOD) unit, which processes and evaluates all patients undergoing myelography, interventional vascular and biopsy procedures. A 12-bed level one post-anesthesia care unit is included in the AOD unit for patients recovering from procedures requiring general anesthesia.

The department is divided into two specialty areas:

  • Cardiovascular Radiology/Neuroradiology and the Vascular Access Team (VAT)
