After completing his studies at Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Aksoy went onto complete his Internal Medicine residency at Johns Hopkins University Hospitals and Cardiology/Interventional Cardiology fellowships at the Cleveland Clinic. He then joined UCLA Division of Cardiology in 2013 and has been a faculty member since.
Dr. Aksoy’s focus since his arrival has been prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. As an active clinician, Dr. Aksoy specializes in evaluating and treating patients with coronary artery and structural heart diseases. He is involved in invasive evaluation and treatment of cardiovascular diseases where he performs coronary angiograms/angioplasty and stenting, minimally invasive treatment of heart valve diseases (TAVR and Mitraclip), as well as atrial septal defect/patent foramen ovale therapies.
Dr. Aksoy is also an active member of our research program—where he continues to perform registry/clinical trials and collaborates with scientists at UCLA in developing newer generation technologies/devices for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
