More than half a century ago, legendary heart surgeon Dr. Michael E. DeBakey performed the world's first successful removal of a blockage of the carotid artery, setting into motion a career that revolutionized cardiac care as we know it. Today we are proud to carry on Dr. DeBakey's legacy by applying the most advanced technology and techniques to the care of our heart patients—all in a caring, compassionate environment.
The cardiologists of Methodist DeBakey Cardiology Associates (MDCA) are nationally recognized for their expertise in every aspect of care for patients with heart and vascular disease. As members of the Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center, we lead the way in the application of cutting-edge diagnostic techniques, the performance of revolutionary new procedures and innovative therapies.
In fact, many of today's most advanced treatments were initially researched by MDCA physicians, including intricate procedures to clear clogged arteries, electrophysiology techniques to correct abnormal heart rhythms, novel therapies in heart failure, catheter-based implantation of heart valves and innovative imaging procedures to diagnose heart diseases.
