Our Reputation for Outstanding Care, Treatments and Research Attracts Patients from Texas, the Nation and the World
An ambulance immediately took Futer to Houston Methodist’s Kenneth R. Peak Brain and Pituitary Tumor Treatment Center. He participated in a clinical trial, during which specialists used a unique gene therapy designed to strictly attack tumor cells.
Now, an eight-year glioblastoma survivor, Futer has lived significantly longer than most patients, many of whom die within three years after diagnosis. Before receiving treatment at Houston Methodist, Futer also faced a grim prognosis, three months to live.
Leading MedicineHouston Methodist’s teams of surgeons, physicians, researchers and other experts collaborate to solve medicine’s biggest challenges and turn discoveries into new therapies and treatments. Our drive for innovation is rooted in the legacy created by world-renowned cardiac surgeon Dr. Michael E. DeBakey. He performed the first coronary artery bypass surgery in Texas, and pioneered surgical advances, which have become universal practices.
These days, Houston Methodist not only is well established as a leader in heart and vascular treatments, research and education based on DeBakey’s achievements and reputation, but also is known for spearheading breakthroughs in organ transplantation, orthopedics, cancer treatment and neurology and neuroscience.
