Srividya Kidambi, MD
Assistant Professor of Medicine

Dr. Kidambi is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Endocrinology, Metabolism, and Clinical Nutrition at the Medical College of Wisconsin/Froedtert Hospital. Dr. Kidambi received her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery from Gandhi Medical College, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India. She completed her Residency at the State University of New York at Buffalo. She completed her Fellowship in Endocrinology and Master of Science in Epidemiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin.
While she treats all hormonal disorders, she focuses on conditions surrounding metabolic syndrome (diabetes mellitus type 1, type 2, obesity, lipid disorders, and high blood pressure), Polycystic ovarian disease, and functional thyroid disease. Having conducted research on high blood pressure and obesity for several years, she is passionate about treatment of conditions associated with severe uncontrolled blood pressure, blood pressure in young people, and blood pressure secondary to hormonal disorders.
Dr. Kidambi says, “My goal is to make patients comfortable enough to share their story with me. I believe that disease is just one aspect of a patient’s life and there are other things in their lives that can impact their disease and its treatment. I have a passion to treat chronic diseases and spend a lot of time trying to understand the things that motivate patients who struggle with diseases that do not have an easy solution. My reward is change in their outlook and improvement in their health.”
Her current research involves 1. Association of aldosterone with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance, 2. Gender and ethnic differences in the body fat distribution and its role in causing diseases such as heart disease or high blood pressure. She has authored several papers in medical journals on these topics.
