Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center

About Us

Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center (MDHVC) takes a patient-centered, interdisciplinary approach to cardiovascular care and research that focuses on the disease, not the department. Here, cardiology, cardiovascular surgery and cardiovascular anesthesia come together so that we can deliver the best combination of medical and surgical solutions for each patient.

Our home at Houston Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center places us at the center of a long tradition of innovation in cardiovascular care. Physicians at Houston Methodist and in the Texas Medical Center invented and perfected many of the advanced heart surgeries and therapies that today are considered routine.

Our namesake, Dr. Michael E. DeBakey, is a symbol of the remarkable potential of modern cardiac medicine. Our physicians and staff carry on in the spirit of his example—pioneering, healing and advancing the art and science of specialized cardiac medicine.
