He completed his Internal Medicine residency and Gastroenterology fellowship training at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. He pursued an additional year of specialty training in Interventional Endoscopy at Columbia University Irving Medical Center. He was on faculty at the Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard Medical School, prior to returning to Columbia University.

Dr. Visrodia is an active member of the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and World Gastroenterology Organisation (WGO). He has published research and review articles, book chapters, editorials and delivered presentations on the endoscopic management of pre-cancerous and cancerous conditions (e.g., Barrett’s esophagus) as well as improving the safety of endoscopy.
