Deepak Sudheendra, MD, RPVI, FSIR (aka Dr. Sudi)
Dr. Sudi is a vascular and interventional radiologist with over 20 years of experience in treating diseases of the arteries and veins. Patients and physicians from around the globe seek his advice and care on complex vascular conditions. Dr. Sudi founded Get Healthy Veins as a resource for patients and medical professionals to provide up-to-date information on venous disease that is poorly understood, frequently misdiagnosed, and often ignored.
Dr. Sudi is double board certified in Diagnostic Radiology and Interventional Radiology. He is a Fellow of the Society of Interventional Radiology (FSIR), one of the most prestigious honors given in the field of interventional radiology. He is the Founder and Director of the DVT and Complex Venous Disease Program and an Assistant Professor of Clinical Radiology and Surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. He lives in NJ with his wife and two children.
“At 27 weeks pregnant, I was diagnosed with a large blood clot in my leg. Dr. Sudi then placed a stent in my iliac vein. Two months post procedure and all of my symptoms have nearly gone away. I couldn’t be happier!”
“I was born with congenital shortness of my left leg and have had over 30 operations to correct the shortness. I have experienced significant and painful swelling, redness and tenderness in my entire left leg. Orthopedic doctors were unable to diagnose the issue and concluded it was probably due to all the surgical trauma the leg had endured over the years. Dr. Sudi diagnosed May Thurner syndrome. After stenting my iliac vein, the swelling and redness has decreased significantly and my energy level has greatly improved. Dr Sudi is awesome!”
“For 4 yrs I had experienced pain in my vulva, diagnosed by numerous gynecologists as varicose veins. I was told to lie down and put my feet up. Dr. Sudi diagnosed the cause of my pain as May Thurner syndrome, treated it, and the pain disappeared completely! He gave me back my active life.”
“Dr. Sudi cleared blockages in the femoral and popliteal vein near the calf. Dr. Sudi is remarkable. He came to my room for 45 minutes the next day to show us the results of the procedure. Gave me a future.”
“I was referred to Dr. Sudheendra by my Oncologist. My left leg was extremely swollen due to a blood clot. Dr. Sudi cleaned out the clot…and performed a similar procedure after a tumor removal and vein reconstruction. Both procedures allowed me to return to a higher quality of life. I will always be grateful to Dr. Sudi. He went above and beyond and always put my comfort and health first.”
“Dr. Sudheendra visited me in my hospital room while being treated for internal bleeding. At the same time I suffered severe DVT in both my legs. Surgery was performed and in 2-3 weeks my legs returned to normal. Special thanks to Dr. Sudi for being an exceptional surgeon, but also a “people person”.
“Not even 24 hrs after my surgery there was unbelievable results. Swelling / numbness in my legs continue to subside, bulging abdomen veins are nearly invisible, being short of breath is gone! I can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done to help me.”
“Dr. Sudheendra gave me treatment for my DVT. He explains things in a way that’s easy to understand. He truly gave me my life back. His constant education on DVT and everything to do with veins and being an advocate for patients to help them live the best life possible is so impressive and exactly what you want in a doctor!”
“I can’t say enough about Dr Sudheendra and his staff. He gave my son a chance to live a normal life. Words are not enough…”
