Pavan Chanamolu, P.A.-C., is a certified physician assistant with MyMichigan Health and a member of the comprehensive heart and vascular team. This team includes cardiologists, interventional cardiologists, electrophysiologists, heart failure and structural heart specialists, as well as vascular and cardiovascular surgeons.
“Throughout my clinical experience I have seen firsthand the importance of cardiovascular health in overall patient wellbeing,” said Pavan. “Vascular surgery is a highly advanced field that allows us to use cutting-edge technology to improve long-term quality of care for patients.”
Philosophy of Care
Pavan believes in contributing to the health and well-being of his patients by practicing evidence-based medicine and inspiring hope and confidence in them knowing they are in safe hands. “I have always believed that prevention is better than a cure, and encourage my patients to choose healthy lifestyles,” he added. “I enjoy making connections with them and being involved in their long-term care. I encourage them to take responsibility for their health and support them in reaching their healthy lifestyle goals.”
Pavan believes that each patient is unique and needs individual attention. “I want my patients to be honest, and transparent about their health choices which I believe is very important in decision making and treatment compliance,” he said. “I treat my patients with respect, just the way I would like to be treated when I go to my doctor’s visit.”
Special Interests and Procedures
According to Pavan, one of the most exciting developments in the field of vascular surgery is the shift to more non-invasive, state-of-the-art, endovascular techniques as opposed to open procedures previously performed. His areas of special interest include peripheral artery disease, venous diseases, aneurysms and carotid artery disease. “I enjoy collaborating with the vascular surgeons in providing new office consults, routine surveillance, surgical counselling and post-operative management,” he added.
In his free time, Pavan enjoys travelling, working out, watching cricket, movies, and spending quality time with his wife Phani and his twin girls, Maya and Tara.
