Selim Sekili

M.D. | F.A.C.C.

    Dr. Sekili was born in Chicago, Illinois. He graduated Glenbrook North High School as Valedictorian in 1979. He then attended the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana for college and graduated with the Bronze Tablet Award, recognizing the top 3% of the graduating class. He continued his training for medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago, and residency in Internal Medicine at Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago, which at the time was affiliated with the University of Chicago.

    After nearly 30 years in Chicago, he moved to Houston in the 1990 for his Cardiology Fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine with rotations mainly at the Methodist Hospital. He also completed research in myocardial stunning and preconditioning with several publications. He then did an Interventional Cardiology Fellowship at The Methodist Hospital in Houston where for a full year, he did nothing but angioplasties and stents of various blocked arteries. 

    Since 1995, Dr. Sekili has been serving the West Houston and Memorial communities. He is board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiology. He is trained in all aspects of cardiology with an emphasis on prevention of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes. He achieves this with detailed risk factor analysis and control, including focusing on cholesterol, hypertension, diabetes, smoking, and genetics, coupled with the early detection of cardiovascular disease through careful physical examination, ultrasound of carotid arteries, echocardiography, holter monitoring and stress testing. He would much rather prevent the development of blockages in his patients, but when the need arises, he has special expertise in the diagnostic catheterization of the heart, aorta, kidney and peripheral arteries as well as the opening of blockages with balloon angioplasty, stents and atherectomy. 

    Dr. Sekili’s personal interests include a variety of sports including football and soccer. He likes to spend his spare time with his wife and two children including coaching them in volleyball, soccer and softball over the years.
