Jay Pandya, MD

Interventional Cardiology | Peripheral Vascular Interventions | Venous Disorders

Dr. Pandya specializes in advanced coronary and peripheral vascular/arterial interventions. He also provides complex percutaneous therapy for advanced venous conditions, including treatment for DVTs (blood clots in the arms/legs), pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in the lung), venous ulcers, and varicose veins. Dr. Pandya educates his patients on their condition, as well as on potential treatment options.

Born and raised in the Chicago area, Dr. Jay Pandya earned his medical degree from Rush Medical College, and went on to complete a cardiology fellowship at Northwestern University in Chicago. He then completed a second fellowship in interventional cardiology at the University of Illinois, where he was trained in advanced coronary and peripheral vascular/arterial interventions. At that time he was mentored in advanced radial artery catheterization techniques, and now performs the vast majority of his heart procedures through the wrist, as well as many of his peripheral vascular procedures.

In addition to being a specialist in minimally invasive peripheral arterial interventions, Dr Pandya also provides complex percutaneous therapy for advanced venous conditions, including treatment for DVTs (blood clots in the arms/legs), pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in the lung), venous ulcers, and varicose veins.

Dr. Pandya believes a major role for physicians is to educate patients on their condition, as well as on potential treatment options. In his spare time, he enjoys being with his family, traveling, hiking, music, and mountain biking.
