Vamsi Pavuluri, MD
Medical Director, Cardiac Imaging Operations
I am a non-invasive cardiologist with a focus on cardiac imaging at Memorial Cardiac and Vascular Institute. I treat patients with valvular heart disease, coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, heart failure and other heart complications. I am fellowship-trained in advanced imaging including cardiac MRIs, cardiac CTs, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology.
I became interested in a career in medicine as I watched my uncle’s career as a cardiologist. I love the variety of patients I get to work with. One day, I may help someone facing a severe cardiac emergency and provide immediate relief. Then I get to care for some patients for decades, developing a unique relationship with them as I provide care throughout their life.
As cardiac care advances at lightning speed, cardiac imaging becomes a vital resource and I hope my knowledge in this area this will aid in providing the best care to my patients.Related Medical Services
