Dr. Khitri's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Khitri "Dr. Avinash Khitri is an Interventional Cardiologist who is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology, Nuclear Cardiology and Echocardiography. He specializes in the evaluation and management of coronary artery disease and peripheral arterial disease, including complex interventions of both disciplines. He performs diagnostic and therapeutic cardiac catheterizations, specializing in interventions via the radial artery approach, which leads to enhanced patient comfort and less post-procedural recovery time. He also specializes in the treatment of valvular heart disease, congestive heart failure, arrhythmias, hypertension, and preventative cardiology. Dr. Khitri received his Bachelor's degree from Claremont McKenna College and obtained his medical degree from the University of Nevada School of Medicine, where he served as vice-president of his medical class. He went on to complete his Internal Medicine residency at the prestigious University of Arizona, where he was named the Southern Arizona Veteran's Association Medical Center Resident of the Year and also received the University of Arizona Department of Medicine Outstanding Humanism and Professionalism Award. After residency, he completed his fellowships in Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology at the highly ranked Lankenau Medical Center Heart Institute. Dr. Khitri has authored numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and has had his work presented at multiple national conferences on topics ranging from the use of intravascular ultrasound in the management of cardiac transplant vasculopathy to the use of novel anti-arrhythmic agents for the conversion and maintenance of atrial fibrillation. Dr. Khitri enjoys spending quality time with his wife and son during his free time. He also is an avid golfer, having played competitively from childhood through college. He is excited to be a part of Epic Cardiology and provide excellent cardiac care to patients in the region."
