ACTSI Investigator Dr. Chandan Devireddy in the News

Chandan Devireddy, MD, ACTSI investigator and Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Cardiology. He is currently involved in research focusing on novel interventional technology in autonomic modulation for resistant hypertension and potentially other systemic diseases, transcatheter valve intervention for the treatment of structural heart disease, and improving outcomes in complex coronary and peripheral vascular disease. He is the site principal investigator of a trial funded by Medtronic Vascular, Inc. entitled, “Global clinical study of renal denervation with the Symplicity Spyral™: multi-electrode renal denervation system in patients with uncontrolled hypertension in the absence of antihypertensive medications.” Outside of work, he and his wife enjoy watching the world come to life through the eyes of their two sons. Rare free time is spent watching Wolverine football, TV series, cooking, and biking the new Beltline trail.
