Hemant Kudrimoti, MD, PhD
Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology
Arizona Comprehensive Epilepsy Program
Director - Neurology Residency Program
Dr. Kudrimoti is currently an Associate Professor of Clinical Neurology at the University of Arizona, and is the Residency Program Director for the neurology residency program at the Arizona Health Sciences Center. A diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, he has been a faculty member in the Department of Neurology since 2004 and is actively involved in teaching of neurology trainees, medical students and nursing staff. In 2007-2008, and in 2009-2010, Dr. Kudrimoti was named one of the "Best Doctors in America". In 2009, Dr. Kudrimoti was also named as one of the "America's Top Physicians" by the Consumers' Research Council of America. Dr. Kudrimoti's clinical and research interests are in the area of epilepsy and seizure disorders, and he is an active member of the Arizona Comprehensive Epilepsy Program. He also sees patients with various other neurological disorders at our clinical facilities. Dr. Kudrimoti is currently accepting patients and is listed on various health insurance plans. Dr. Kudrimoti is also active in the department's neurophysiology program, reading electroencephalograms (EEGs) and performing intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IOM).
Dr. Kudrimoti is a graduate of Grant Medical College, University of Mumbai, India, holds a master's degree in biomedical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology in Mumbai, India, and has a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from the University of Arizona. He completed his residency in Neurology and a fellowship in Epileptology also at University of Arizona. Dr. Kudrimoti is a member of the American Epilepsy Society, and the American Academy of Neurology. Dr. Kudrimoti has conducted laboratory research and written articles on various topics dealing with epilepsy.
