Biography

A patient-centered approach to preventing heart disease

Dr. Anurag Mehta’s fight against cardiovascular disease begins with prevention. Early detection of potential risks for heart problems and coming up with an effective strategy to treat them are essential elements in stopping issues before they start.

As director of preventive cardiology at VCU Health’s Pauley Heart Center, Dr. Mehta takes an in-depth look at each patient’s medical history to identify risk factors and spot signs of heart disease. “And once we identify risk, we can develop a patient-centered treatment tailored to each person,” he says.

With that knowledge, he develops a proactive approach to managing high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity. Dr. Mehta also treats coronary artery disease, heart failure, peripheral artery disease, and arrhythmia (an irregular heartbeat).

His goal at VCU Health is to promote and preserve heart health among his patients and around the community. “I want my patients to know that they are at the heart of everything we do here,” Dr. Mehta says.

Since the field of cardiovascular medicine is constantly changing, he knows that providing the best heart care to patients involves staying current about the latest research and therapies. He’s been at the forefront of research in his field, publishing over 70 articles in peer-reviewed journals about preventive heart care on topics such as lipids, metabolic disorders, and cardiovascular risk assessment. He also earned a young investigator award and postdoctoral research funding from the American Heart Association.
