Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy Research


Our faculty physicians in the Division of Vascular Surgery and Endovascular Therapy at Baylor College of Medicine are widely recognized as leaders in the fields of vascular surgery and endovascular therapy at several institutions in the Texas Medical Center, including Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center, the Texas Heart Institute, Texas Children’s Hospital, the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center and Ben Taub Hospital.

Equipped with state-of-the-art resources and funded by the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society, the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center, the National Institute of Neurology Disorders and Strokes, and the Department of Veterans Affairs, the research center conducts basic science programs in vascular biology, pancreatic cancer research, surgical immunology, and cancer vaccination.

To ensure that the newest treatment options are available to patients with vascular disease, the division actively participates in several clinical trials that evaluate new devices for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral arterial disease.

Our research efforts in clinical outcomes following surgical or endovascular treatment of aneurysms, dialysis interventions, lower extremity occlusive disease, and carotid disease, have helped define standards of care in vascular disease management.
