Dr. Aravind Arepally is an Assistant Professor of Radiology and Surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Arepally obtained his undergraduate degree from the Mercer University with a degree in Mathematics. He subsequently graduated from the Emory University School of Medicine in 1993. He received his diagnostic radiology training at Emory University Hospital. He continued his training at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutes where he was a fellow in Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology. Upon completion of his training, he joined the department as full time faculty.
His research interests include basic science research, clinical research, and device development. In the basic science arena, he is investigating the use of MRI to perform novel vascular procedures. He hopes to be able to develop new therapies utilizing MRI that are currently not feasible with current technology. His clinical research interests include problems related to the cardiovascular system, in particular, new pharmacologic drugs available for the treatment of vascular disease. He is also working with the Johns Hopkins School of Biomedical Engineering on projects related to new minimally invasive devices.
Clinically, Dr. Arepally is interested in vascular disease. Specifically, thoracic and abdominal aortic stent grafts, renal artery stenosis, and carotid stenosis. He also has extensive training in management of percutaneous peripheral vascular disease.
Dr. Arepally is a member of the Society of Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, Radiological Society of North America, International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and American Roentgen Ray Society. He is the recipient of numerous national awards and grants for his research in the field of MRI. He has also lectured nationally and throughout the world on new techniques for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease and other minimally invasive therapies.
