Patient Care

A message from the Chair

“For the past half-century, the Texas Medical Center has been the center of cardiovascular treatment, innovation, and education for the world led by pioneering mentors such as Drs. DeBakey and Cooley. At McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston, we strive to carry on that spirit of innovation through continuous research, education and delivering unmatched, patient-centered, quality cardiovascular care. In partnership with Memorial Hermann Health System, we’re pushing the boundaries of what is known through discovery of the unknown, increasing overall awareness by sharing what we’ve learned through the education of our global community. Delivering such industry-changing care will be accomplished by placing our focus on each individual patient, one patient at a time.”

– Anthony Estrera, MD, Professor and Chair of Cardiothoracic & Vascular Surgery, McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston
