Naoki Misumida, MD, FACC, FSCAI, is an interventional cardiologist with a focus in structural heart disease and treatment. Dr. Misumida received his medical degree from Mie University in Tsu, Japan, and then completed his residency and subsequent cardiology training at Toyota Memorial Hospital in Japan. Dr. Misumida’s aspiration to be a leading interventional cardiologist led him to pursue a second residency and cardiology training in the U.S.

He completed a residency in internal medicine at Mount Sinai Beth Israel, New York, followed by general cardiology and interventional cardiology fellowship training at the University of Kentucky. He completed an advanced interventional cardiology fellowship in structural heart disease at Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, where he learned from world-renowned interventional cardiologists. Upon completion of his more than a decade-long training, Dr. Misumida returned to UK HealthCare and, he plays an integral role in the structural heart team.

His particular interest lies in structural heart disease such as aortic and mitral valve disease as well as stroke prevention for atrial fibrillation. Academically, Dr. Misumida collaborates with local and national experts to publish multiple journal articles each year on topics that include coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, and structural heart disease interventions.

Personal Statement

I clearly remember the day I witnessed a live demonstration of a transcatheter aortic valve replacement more than ten years ago when I was a cardiology fellow in Japan. I was fascinated by the successful, seemingly easy, minimally invasive procedure. At the same time, I never imagined this procedure to evolve to the current level of sophistication which has become a part of standard daily practice. Since then, my particular interest in structural heart disease has been expanding with each technical advancement solidifying my desires to partake in this rapidly developing field. I look forward to helping bring those advancements to the people of Kentucky.
