Treatment of aortic disease can be very challenging. In order for a center to obtain optimal patient outcomes, the aortic treatment team must encompass a multidisciplinary team of cardiovascular surgeons, vascular surgeons, cardiologists, imaging specialists and other professionals. This allows for individualized treatment based on each patient's specific presentation and medical condition in a timely manner.
At the Methodist Aortic Network, we have developed a multidisciplinary team of specialists who are experts in the treatment of aortic disease. While the majority of aortic surgery is performed at our Texas Medical Center (TMC) location, many of our locations within Houston Methodist are equipped and ready for clinical consultations, aortic imaging and low-risk aortic procedures. Regardless of the aortic condition, you can count on the Methodist Aortic Network physicians for prompt, state-of the-art care in the optimal location.
