  • About

    Mahesh R. Kudrimoti, MD, is a professor of radiation oncology within the Department of Radiation Medicine of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. He also serves as program director of UK’s Radiation Oncology Residency Program. Dr. Kudrimoti has been a part of the UK College of Medicine since 1997 when he began his residency in radiation oncology here. Prior to that, he completed his internship at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, PA, after earning his MD from the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research in Chandigarh, India; his MBBS from Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad, India; and his undergraduate degree from Little Flower Junior College, also in Hyderabad.

    Dr. Kudrimoti is certified by the American Board of Radiology in radiation oncology and is a member of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) and the American Brachytherapy Society (ABS). His research interests include head and neck cancers; mucositis; skin cancers including melanomas, sarcomas, and liver-directed therapy for primary and secondary tumors of the liver; pancreatic cancer; and biliary tumors.

    Outside of his job, Dr. Kudrimoti enjoys traveling with his wife. Together, they have travelled through 43 of the 50 states. Since moving to Kentucky from India 20 years ago, Dr. Kudrimoti has lived in several areas of the bluegrass state, including Lexington, Louisville, and Hazard.

    Personal Statement: “I’ve been here since 1997, and I’ve seen Markey grow in terms of its size and complexity. I’ve seen the technologies change, I’ve seen the evolution of our department, and I have participated in its growth. I understand where our patients come from, and I understand their limitations. I’ve learned to understand their culture, their feelings, and how they think and look at life. And we have all learned to incorporate all those things into what we do here at Markey and in our radiation oncology department.”
