Dr. Ayyagari received his Bachelor of Arts in Behavioral Biology from Swarthmore College in 1996. After that, he served in the Peace Corps for two and a half years, working in Ecuador’s Andes mountains and Amazon rainforests. Driven by his passion for providing medical care to those in need, he pursued a Medical Doctor (M.D.) degree at Yale School of Medicine, which he completed in 2004. He then underwent rigorous training, including a two-year Urology residency at the University of Washington, a Diagnostic Radiology residency, and a Vascular and Interventional Radiology fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA. His comprehensive training culminated in 2011, and he went on to become an Associate Professor of Interventional Radiology and Urology at Yale, where he served until 2022. In August of the same year, he returned to Boston where he is currently Associate Professor of Radiology at Boston University School of Medicine and staff Interventional Radiologist at Boston Medical Center.
Renowned urologist Dr. Ayyagari brings valuable experience to the HALO team of treating physicians.
TULSA PRO, or Transurethral Ultrasound Ablation of Prostate, is a revolutionary, radiation-free, and minimally invasive procedure. It’s tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy and prostate condition, with meticulous pre-procedure planning by physicians. During the procedure, active cooling of the urethra and rectum safeguards nearby critical structures, minimizing the risk of side effects. This personalized approach offers a promising solution for prostate treatment with reduced risks and optimal precision.
