He performs coronary angiogram, coronary angioplasty with stenting (using wrist artery), complex coronary intervention using rotablation and laser. Moreover, he is proficient in the use of intracoronary imaging using intracoronary ultrasound, OCT and pressure wire assessment to optimise outcomes.  

Research and Publications: Dr Kodoth did research on the management of atrial fibrillation leading to the award of MD from Queens University, Belfast. He has published extensively in national and international peer reviewed journals.
