Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Disease
A graduate of Yale University, Dr. Siddarth Prakash earned an M.D. and a Ph.D. in molecular and human genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where he also completed his residency and a fellowship in cardiovascular disease.
Board certified in both cardiovascular disease and adult transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, Dr. Prakash’s clinical interests center on bicuspid aortic valve, thoracic aortic aneurysm, and adult congenital heart disease in patients 17 and older. His research concentrates on the genetic causes of bicuspid aortic valves and related congenital abnormalities involving the left ventricular outflow tract and aorta.
Dr. Prakash is a Fellow of the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology. He serves as an assistant professor of medical genetics at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School.
Continuous assessment, participation in research, and guideline-based therapies are the main focuses of Dr. Prakash’s practice philosophy. With his emphasis on genetic counseling, screening and surveillance for patients and families with congenital heart disease, patients rely on him for long-term care and clear answers about their genetic conditions and prognoses.
Dr. Prakash is a resident of the Medical Center area.
