About me

Dr. Anoop Sheshadri is a nephrologist who cares for patients with chronic and end-stage kidney disease at the UCSF Nephrology and Hypertension Faculty Practice. He strives to help his patients find medical and lifestyle interventions that will improve their symptoms, quality of life and cardiovascular outcomes.

In his research, Sheshadri studies the effects of physical activity in patients treated with dialysis as well as 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 in those treated with traditional 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. He completed his residency at the UTSW Medical Center in Dallas.

A nephrology fellow at UCSF, Sheshadri is a member of the American Society of Nephrology and American Kidney Fund. In 2016, he was awarded a Ben J. Lipps Research Fellowship from the American Society of Nephrology and the UCSF Andy I. Choi, MD Memorial Scholarship.

The more patients know, the better equipped they are to manage their conditions. Feeling better takes time and teamwork – and sometimes homework.
