The Division of Vascular Surgery faculty members have extensive experience in the management of complicated, as well as straight-forward, vascular problems. We have expertise with all FDA-approved devices for thoracic and abdominal endografting as well as peripheral and carotid interventions.

The Vascular Surgery faculty has been recognized for:

  • First endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair in the South Texas Area.
  • First comprehensive carotid artery stenting program
  • Placement of the first Zenith AAA stent in the State of Texas
  • First thoracic aortic endograft surgery performed in San Antonio and South Texas
