Collaboration between Experts

Houston Methodist West cardiologists work closely with cardiovascular imaging specialists and cardiothoracic and vascular surgeons to develop personalized care for each patient.

Advancement in Treatment

The introduction of new technologies in both cardiovascular diagnostics and interventional cardiology (catheter–based procedures) have expanded the treatment options available to patients and greatly enhanced patient safety and outcomes.

Our hybrid OR allows interventional cardiologists to work alongside surgeons to perform joint (hybrid) procedures that improve outcomes while eliminating the need for a second procedure.
