About Me

Overview

       Dr. Santhisri Kodali is a cardiac electrophysiologist in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, whose practice focuses on treating patients with cardiac arrhythmias and also preventative medicine.

       Growing up, Dr. Kodali had an avid interest in science and medicine that led to her winning the 2nd place Grand Award in Gerontology at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Portland, Oregon. She then went on to complete her undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering in 3 years at the University of Texas at Austin, graduating with honors in 2007.

       She subsequently obtained her MD degree from the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and went on to complete her internal medicine residency and general cardiology fellowship at the Houston Methodist Hospital. Following this, she completed her cardiac electrophysiology training at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.

       Dr. Kodali then joined as an Assistant Professor of Cardiac Electrophysiology at the University of Texas Medical Branch, where she developed the complex arrhythmia ablation program (including ablation of ventricular tachycardia and patients with mechanical heart pumps) and facilitated newer technologies such as the leadless pacemaker. She was also the Associate Program Director of the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship at University of Texas Medical Branch. In addition, she developed a novel aerosol container design for use during cardiac electrophysiology procedures in patients with highly transmissible respiratory diseases such as Covid-19. In her current practice in the Texas Medical Center in Houston, Dr. Kodali performs fluoroless catheter ablation of arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia and cardiac device implantation procedures.

       In her free time, Dr. Kodali enjoys spending time with her family, playing chess, reading astrophysics, and continues to engage in her passion of clinical research.
