Boulder Heart welcomes Dr. Srinivas Iyengar, a board-certified cardiologist who is fellowship trained in cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology, including Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) — a new minimally invasive procedure for treating severe aortic stenosis.

Dr. Srinivas Iyengar was born and raised in New Jersey. He completed his undergraduate degree at Rutgers University. He attended medical school at Ross University, with subsequent internal medicine training (including a year as Chief Resident) at the Jewish Hospital/University of Cincinnati.

Dr. Iyengar completed a heart failure/transplantation fellowship and a general cardiology fellowship under the tutelage of Dr. William Abraham at the Ohio State University. He then completed a two-year advanced interventional cardiology/peripheral vascular fellowship at Columbia University.

Dr. Iyengar was in practice for eight years in Florida where he created/directed two separate TAVR programs, as well as spearheading the mitraclip and Watchman LAA occlusion programs in his respective hospitals. Dr. Iyengar has authored numerous peer-reviewed manuscripts and book chapters. He has performed hundreds of TAVR, mitraclip, and Watchman/LAA occlusion device procedures over the last five years and is currently very active in structural cardiology device research.
