Dr. Chatterjee joins Banner University Medical Center - Tucson as the Associate Director for Structural Heart disease after being an integral part of a high-volume structural program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He originally hails from India and completed medical school at the University of Delhi followed by a residency at the University of Louisville. He underwent cardiology and interventional cardiology fellowships at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, where he then joined the faculty in 2016. In his first year on faculty, he was trained on structural and congenital procedures by both adult and pediatric interventionist mentors, gaining an experience which is extremely rare for adult cardiologists. Subsequently he was a key part of both the adult structural and adult congenital interventional programs. He is experienced in transcatheter therapies for valvular disease and other congenital / structural heart defects. For example, he has done more than 200 transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures. He finds the best part of working in the structural heart team is the necessity of a team structure - different specialty physicians / surgeons, advanced providers all working to find the best treatment pathway for each individual patient and is excited to be part of the vibrant team at Banner in Tucson.
