On July 1st, Dr. Bandt accomplished a major milestone in Desert Radiologists and Las Vegas history by completing 35 years of providing interventional and diagnostic radiology services to the people of Southern Nevada and beyond.

Dr. Bandt's medical career began in 1960 when he graduated with honors from the University of Minnesota. In 1966 he graduated Salutatorian and Alpha Omega Alpha from the University of Minnesota Medical School. From 1966 to 1968 he completed his Medical-Surgical Internship and a Nuclear Medicine Fellowship at the United States Public Health Service Hospital in San Francisco. Dr. Bandt was also the Radiation Medical Officer at the United States Public Health Service Hospital from 1968 to 1969. Dr. Bandt later served as Diagnostic Radiology Resident at Stanford Medical Center and during his final year of residency was elected Chief Resident.

In 1972, Dr. Bandt joined Desert Radiologists as the 5th physician in the growing practice. He was Chairman of the medical staff at UMC from 1982 to 1988, Chairman of the Department of Radiology at UMC from 1978 to 1988 and Chairman of the Department of Radiology at Desert Springs Hospital from 1990 to 1997. Currently, Dr. Bandt serves as Vice Chairman of the medical staff as well as Chairman of the Radiology Department at Desert Springs Hospital.

Dr. Bandt was honored in 1998 with the Nevada Distinguished Physician Award from the Nevada State Medical Society in recognition of outstanding service to the Nevada medical community. He has also been selected by his peers as one of the Top Doctors in America since 1996.

Additionally, Dr. Bandt was instrumental in establishing interventional radiology departments at both UMC and Desert Springs Hospital, and he continues to direct the interventional radiology department at Desert Springs Hospital.

"Only July 26th, Desert Radiologists hosted a dinner to honor Dr. Bandt and his many accomplishments," said William Moore, Desert Radiologists CEO. "I have personally known Dr. Bandt since 1998 when I relocated to Las Vegas as COO at Desert Springs Hospital. He impressed me immediately with his kind demeanor, knowledge of the Las Vegas medical community and overall leadership of the hospital medical staff."

In attendance at the dinner were Dr. Bandt's family, fellow physicians and members of the Desert Radiologists' management team. Throughout the evening many guests paid tribute to Dr. Bandt by telling stories of what an inspiration and mentor he has been to anyone he comes in contact with. As the evening ended it was clear to see that Dr. Bandt not only has been successful in his career, but has found the perfect life and work balance.

"I found the evening to be touching and inspiring," said Michele Crawford, Marketing Director for Desert Radiologists. "Hearing the stories of how Dr. Bandt was a pioneer in radiology and Las Vegas was incredible. But even more amazing, was to watch Dr. Bandt with his lovely wife, Inara. I left the evening feeling that you really can have it all. Thank you, Dr. Bandt, for inspiring one more person."
