Dr. Khusrow Niazi is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases and Interventional Cardiology by the American Board of Internal Medicine. He joined Emory University in 2003 and besides his interventional cardiology skills, he developed the program of peripheral vascular interventions using endovascular techniques. He educated physicians especially cardiologists in how to look for vascular disease outside the heart including carotid artery disease, peripheral arterial disease, and lower extremity venous disease. Besides training physicians in the non-invasive Doppler techniques for the diagnosis of vascular diseases and complex interventional procedures, he actively participates in helping companies develop new devices for endovascular procedures. He is actively involved in clinical research and has been in the forefront in helping patients, especially with non-healing wounds to avoid them from having amputations.
Dr. Niazi is a prolific teacher and besides teaching medical students, residents, and cardiology fellows, he has been invited to give lectures, grand rounds locally, nationally, and internationally. He has traveled to many countries and has encouraged physicians to not only think of coronary artery disease but also evaluate and treat patients for vascular disease. He has done live demonstration cases demonstrating various endovascular techniques in different countries.
He is also a member of the peripheral vascular disease council of the prestigious American College of Cardiology (ACC) and has helped the college in growing the awareness of PVD. He continues to share his experience with other physicians in advancing the field of cardiovascular diseases. In addition, the ACC this year has also invited him to be a member of the ACC Competency Management Committee.
