Michael Megaly, MD, Joins Willis-Knighton Cardiology

Jul 14, 2022

Michael Megaly, MD, MS, FACC, FSCAI, has joined Willis-Knighton Cardiology, part of the Willis-Knighton Physician Network. Dr. Megaly specializes in the treatment of complex coronary artery disease for patients who have chronic total occlusion (CTO) or 100 percent blockage.  

Dr. Megaly comes to Willis-Knighton from a fellowship in high-risk coronary interventions at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Previously, he completed a cardiology fellowship at Minneapolis Heart Institute and Hennepin Healthcare and an interventional cardiology fellowship at University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. He also served an internal medicine residency at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago and a general surgery residency at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt, where he earned his medical degree and Master of Science degree in surgery.

He has authored or co-authored more than 150 manuscripts and has written multiple chapters in different CTO intervention books. He is an associate board member, editor and peer reviewer for prestigious interventional cardiology journals. He has presented as a faculty member and an expert panelist at multiple prestigious interventional cardiology conferences. 

“I have a passion for helping patients who were told that they could not be helped,” Dr. Megaly says. “I have focused on treating these patients to get better with less invasive catheter-based interventions. Seeing them get better is very rewarding because many of them are usually not offered treatment, given the complexity of their disease.”

Willis-Knighton Cardiology also includes Phillip A. Rozeman, MD, FACC; Frederick J. White, III, MD, FACC, FCCP; Ajaya K. Tummala, MD, FACC; Basel Kasabali, MD, FACC; Paul G.

The doctors offer a full array of cardiovascular services at offices in Shreveport, Bossier City, Minden, Natchitoches, Vivian, Homer, Ruston and Springhill, including general cardiology, diagnostic and interventional procedures. They accept new patients and most insurance plans.
