Srini Potluri, MD, FACC joined Legacy Heart Center from the Ochsner Clinic Foundation in New Orleans, Louisiana where he was Chief Interventional Fellow and was on the Foundation’s interventional staff. He completed fellowships in cardiology, interventional cardiology and heart failure and cardiac transplantation at the Ochsner Clinic Foundation as well.
He specializes in carotid stenting and the closure of the atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale. Both procedures are innovative stroke prevention strategies that provide patients minimally invasive alternatives to surgery. Carotid stenting provides patients who are a high risk for surgery an alternative to the carotid endarterectomy procedure.
The closure of the atrial septal defect and patent foramen ovale provides patients with an alternative to open heart surgery. Because both procedures are less invasive than traditional surgeries, patients are usually discharged the next day.
He also serves as the head of the Legacy Heart Center Vein and Vascular Clinic and is the medical director of the catheterization laboratory at The Heart Hospital Baylor Plano.
Dr. Potluri is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology.
Prior to his work at Ochsner, he served as a Chief Resident at New York Methodist Hospital Cornell Medical Center, where he was named resident of the year for 1999-2000. He received his medical degree from Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad, India and served internships at Methodist Hospital and Osmania General Hospital, where he was named as best intern.
He has received the Charles B. Moore Research Award for outstanding research achievement from the Department of Cardiology at Ochsner; a certificate for scholarly achievement from the department of Internal Medicine; and a Certificate of Merit from the Physician Alumni Association at Methodist Hospital.
