Dr. Parikh’s clinical interests include treating patients with advanced malignancy utilizing minimally invasive techniques. Specific areas of interest include liver directed therapy for primary and secondary liver cancer, as well as for primary kidney cancer. Additionally, Dr. Parikh is interested in treating malignant and non-malignant tumors within the GU system, such as prostate cancer and benign prostatic hyperplasia, respectively. Dr. Parikh earned his undergraduate degree from Columbia University in New York City, and subsequently worked as an investment banker after graduation. After deciding that he wanted to have a significant impact on the daily lives of patients, he obtained MD and MBA degrees from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, MA. He then completed diagnostic radiology residency at NYU Medical Center in New York City, before moving back to Boston to complete a fellowship in Angiography and Interventional Radiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital – Harvard Medical School.
