Dr. Sudheendra's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Sudheendra "As an Interventional Radiologist (IR) at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania - Perelman School of Medicine, I have the privilege of working with & learning from world-renowned physicians in every field of medicine. Even better is the team of top-notch IRs, nurses & staff that I have the opportunity to work with every day. How did I get the opportunity to join this wonderful team? After graduating from Case Western Reserve University & New York Medical College, I began my general surgery residency at the Washington Hospital Center/Georgetown University. Towards the end of my residency, I realized that traditional open surgery was being replaced by more advanced IR procedures that could be performed through a pinhole without incisions. Therefore, I resigned from my residency & began my journey to become an IR. My journey started as a research fellow at the NIH under Dr. Brad Wood, one of the leading IRs specializing in cancer. I then completed a Diagnostic Radiology residency at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) where I had the privilege of doing research with one of the pioneers of IR, Dr. Mark Wholey. I completed a fellowship in IR at the George Washington University Medical Center where I trained under Dr. Anthony Venbrux, one of the preeminent physicians practicing today & the former Chief of IR at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. After my fellowship, I was recruited to the Penn Interventional Radiology faculty where I have developed a robust clinical practice focusing on: • DVT & post-thrombotic syndrome • Cancer • Chronic venous insufficiency & varicose veins • Complex IVC filter retrieval In addition, I have expertise in surgical critical care medicine – a unique skillset possessed by few IRs practicing today. My practice philosophy is centered on a doctor-patient relationship based on integrity, mutual respect, compassion, & education. I firmly believe that patients must have a clear understanding of their medical condition & treatment plan in order to achieve the very best outcomes."

After suffering for months from DVT, I cannot believe the difference the simple procedure Dr. Sudheendra performed has made. There is no evidence of any of the swelling, skin condition and, especially, no pain. He continues to monitor my issues with DVT, and I know I'm in good hands.
