Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) Heart and Vascular Institute recently named the addition of Arun Nagabandi, MD, (Dr. Arun) to their cardiology practice.

Dr. Arun specializes in interventional cardiology, advanced training in cardiovascular disease, and focuses on the invasive management of heart disease.

Dr. Arun received his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery at Osmania Medical College in India. He completed his internal medicine residency at Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.

He then attended Augusta University at Medical College of Georgia to complete his cardiovascular disease fellowship. He completed his interventional/structural cardiology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, Florida.

Dr. Arun is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases and Nuclear Cardiology.

“Growing up, I was always interested in physics, math and biology in school. My interest in cardiology sprouted from a combination of those early interests, as well as my desire to care for the sickest patients,” said Dr. Arun.

“Interventional cardiology allows me to offer very time-sensitive and lifesaving treatments.”

“My goals are to educate patients about heart-healthy lifestyles and to educate them regarding all the medical advancements and treatment options for various heart conditions,” added Dr. Arun.

He says he will treat every patient as he would want his family members to be treated.

Several factors drew Dr. Arun to PMC.

“I joined PMC because I believe this medical center is committed to providing top-tier patient care,” said Dr. Arun. “During my visits here, I have seen a genuine commitment to patient care, unlike anywhere.”

When he is not providing patient care, Dr. Arun enjoys spending time with his wife, Sushma. Together they enjoy playing tennis and cooking.
