He completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in gastroenterology at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth in Houston, followed by an advanced fellowship in therapeutic endoscopy at Stanford University School of Medicine in Stanford, California.
Board certified in internal medicine, Dr. Thosani’s clinical interests include pancreatitis, pancreatic cysts, pancreatic cancer, gallstones, bile duct diseases, colon polyps, colon cancer, endoscopic ultrasound, ERCP (endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography), colonoscopy and optical endoscopic imaging.
Dr. Thosani’s practice philosophy centers on providing personalized care tailored to each patient’s specific clinical problem. He takes time to explain the details of a procedure, allowing each patient to make an informed decision about care and to know what to expect. It is important to him for his patients to have both timely access to necessary procedures and multidisciplinary care that is well coordinated. He uses the latest technology to diagnose and treat certain types of gastrointestinal cancers and perform procedures endoscopically that were previously done surgically. He treats patients 18 years and older and speaks Gujarati and Hindi.
A resident of Houston, Dr. Thosani and his wife are the parents of two sons and a daughter. In his leisure time, he enjoys traveling, basketball, spending time with his children and watching football.
