Acute care surgery and
surgical critical care

The Houston Methodist multidisciplinary surgical critical care teams provide comprehensive care to critically ill patients in the surgical intensive care units (ICU). In the ICU, you or loved one will be treated by a team led by our board-certified surgery and surgical critical care physicians. Our nurses, specialty trained therapists and other health care professionals work collaboratively with you and with the treating physicians to ensure optimal care.
Acute care surgical specialists also serve as an in-house expert consultation team if you are brought into the emergency room or are undergoing a relatively minor but necessary procedure while already in the hospital. Combining evidence-based medicine with ongoing performance improvement reviews ensure you or your loved one achieves the best possible outcome with minimal complications during a hospital stay.
