On the CardioNerds Heart Failure topic page you’ll podcast episodes, references, guest experts and contributors, and so much more.
Dr. Jerry Estep earned his bachelor of arts at the University of Texas, Austin and subsequently received his medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine. He completed internal medicine residency training at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and went back to Baylor for his cardiology and heart failure fellowship training. Prior to joining Cleveland Clinic in 2018 as our section head for the division of heart failure and transplant, Dr. Estep was the Section Head of Heart Failure at Methodist DeBakey in Houston, Texas. Dr. Estep has been involved in numerous clinical trials and co-authored over a 100 peer reviewed articles. He has a special interest in advanced heart failure strategies that include mechanical circulatory support devices and has published heavily on the percutaneous placement of intra-aortic balloon pump in the axillary artery as a long-term support option to bridge patients to transplant. We are really appreciative of Dr. Estep’s time, expertise and amazing discussion regarding advanced heart failure therapies for the cardionerds cardiology podcast.
Dr. Kartik Telukuntla completed medical school in the University of Miami and internal medicine residency at University of Pennsylvania. He is currently a general cardiology fellow at the Cleveland Clinic and is slated to continue on for advanced heart failure fellowship.
