Episode 375. Dr. Kamal J. Khiani MD, MEng.-Musculoskeletal Radiologist with DXP Imaging.
Dr. Khiani is 1 of 5 siblings & is the son of Jaikrishin & Veenu Khiani.
Kamal specializes in Diagnostic Radiology with Subspecialization in Musculoskeletal Radiology.
He is a unique individual with degrees in BOTH engineering & medicine, graduating Summa Cum Laude with Masters in Electrical Engineering from the J.B. Speed School of Engineering in 1997 & the UofL School of Medicine in 2002.
Before those 2 massive academic achievements, in 1995, he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering.
He then completed his pre-med training @ the UofL-affiliated hospitals from 2003-04, & his Radiology Residency @ the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville, PA., from 2004-08 & his Musculoskeletal Radiology fellowship @ the Yale University School of Medicine from 2008-09.
In addition, he graduated valedictorian (that’s 1st in class) from his 1990 Fern Creek High School graduating class, & if all those educational milestones were not enough to keep him busy, he enjoys Ballroom Dancing, Golf, Basketball, movies, board games & spending time with his beautiful wife Jamie, & his 3 beautiful daughters Anjali, Raina, & Ellie as well as his son Lukis.
Kamal was instrumental in finding a solution to a rare disease called severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID). For short- a variation of the so-called “Bubble Boy Disease” that made Raina wildly susceptible to fungal, bacterial & viral infections. As a result, she needed a bone marrow transplant, which was apt to kill her.
