Anoop Sheshadri, MD


Dr. Anoop Sheshadri sees patients at the Nephrology and Hypertension Faculty Practice, where he works to improve the lives of people with chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease by helping them find medical and lifestyle interventions to improve symptoms, quality of life and cardiovascular outcomes.

A clinical instructor at UCSF, Sheshadri studies the effects of physical activity in patients treated with dialysis and ways to improve their physical activity. He also is interested in endothelial function (the function of the blood vessels' inner lining) in patients with chronic kidney disease and those who are treated with dialysis — as well as less-traditional dialysis methods, such as peritoneal dialysis and home hemodialysis.

Sheshadri earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and completed his residency at the UTSW Medical Center in Dallas. He is a nephrology fellow at UCSF and a member of the American Society of Nephrology and the American Kidney Fund. In 2016 he was awarded a Ben J. Lipps Research Fellowship from the American Society of Nephrology and the Andy I. Choi Memorial Scholarship.
