Superior Medicine. Superior Convenience.
Traditionally, medical services of this caliber have only been available in large medical complexes. However, Texas Surgical Associates has taken a new, more accommodating approach to superior cardiovascular medicine. Now patients in suburban areas who require the highest levels of medical care and surgical intervention can have convenient access to prominent physicians, the most innovative technology and top-notch personnel. Hospital affiliations include Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Memorial Hermann Healthcare System (including Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute Southwest, Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute Texas Medical Center), The Methodist Hospital System (including The Methodist Hospital-Texas Medical Center, Methodist Sugar Land Hospital, Methodist Willowbrook Hospital), St. Joseph Medical Center, and University General Hospital.

The Texas Surgical Associates Difference
Texas Surgical Associates is built on the collective strengths of 10 board-certified cardiovascular/thoracic surgeons and 2 general/vascular surgeons. Each carries a distinguished record of perfecting and teaching the world's most advanced surgical techniques. Since its formation in July 1997, Texas Surgical Associates physicians have performed more than 10,000 cardiovascular and thoracic procedures annually - more than any other group of cardiovascular surgeons in the Houston area.
