Dr. Roselle Abraham is the director of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Clinic, a designated Center of Excellence. She cares for adult patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), a condition that causes heart muscle to thicken so that pumping blood becomes difficult.
Abraham is a physician scientist, meaning she is a medical doctor who devotes much of her time to research. Her background is in diagnostic imaging, stem cell research and electrophysiology (the study of the body's electrical activity). She uses various medical imaging technologies to help determine a patient's risk of heart rhythm disorders, with the goal of customizing therapies for individuals with HCM.
Abraham earned her medical degree at Goa Medical College & Hospital, where she completed a residency in internal medicine. She then completed a second residency in internal medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, followed by fellowships in cardiovascular diseases and clinical cardiac electrophysiology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
