Mission Statement

I came to Ghaziabad in 2007 with a dream of making a name for myself in interventional cardiology in Ghaziabad and surrounding areas. Last four years I have been practicing interventional cardiology. During this time I have been doing significant numbers of all intervention procedures like coronary, carotid and peripheral angiography, angioplasty, pacemaker implantations, biventricular/defibrillator implantations, cath studies, device implantations, balloon valvotomies etc. I take special interest in Pediatric cardiac interventions (ASD/VSD/PDA etc) and peripheral vascular interventions like uterine artery embolization/bronchial artery embolization/AV fistula embolization etc. This is apart from routine noninvasive work like Echo, Stress Echo, TMT, Holter, Tilt test etc. In these years i have worked hard to build up a patient base and reputation of my own and now wish to diversify and explore newer areas of work. I plan to start OPDs in newer areas and increase my sphere of influence and practice in and around Ghaziabad and west UP.
