CLINICAL AND PROCEDURAL SKILLS
Over the years of Experience both during my training period and after it ,I have gained significant expertise in various cardiac diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
I had completed my DM in cardiology from the largest volume Government-owned Centre in the country` Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiology`, Bangalore and have been mentored by the hands of the biggest names in cardiology in the country with the likes of Dr. C. N. Manjunath, Dr. K.S. Ravindranath, Dr. B.C. Srinivas, Dr. I. B. Vijayalakshmi, Dr. Jayaranganath and several other great and eminent figures in the stream of cardiology.
After this I had been working since more than 3 years in various hospitals in Surat like Care Hospital, Tristar Hospital and during the course of my freelance working as an independent cardiologist I had tie up for procedures at Mahavir Hospital, Bankers hospital, Wokhardt Hospital, P P Savani hospital and others. During the same period of time for almost a period of 3 years or so I had been working as the chief interventional cardiologist at Orange Hospital, Navsari where we have been performing more than 200 cardiac cathlab procedures every month on a consistent basis which includes almost 50-60 angioplasties, devices and other therapeutic interventions. I have left Orange Hospital since January 2018 and now I am exclusively working In Valsad and Vapi only.
Since September 2016 after I had shifted my residence to Valsad, I had been performing an additional more than 200 of cardiac diagnostic and almost 65- 75 therapeutic interventions every month in Amit Hospital, Valsad and in 21st century Hospital, Vapi as well. In total I have successfully performed over 7000 angioplasties and over 17000 angiographies, predominantly from the radial route. I have gained significant Expertise and now am routinely performing in all complex cardiac interventions like Left main, Bifurcation, Chronic total Occlusions angioplasty, Rota-ablation of calcified lesions and IVUS and FFR guided angioplasties.
I had left Amit Hospital and have started my own clinic and we have put our own cathlab at zenith doctor house at Valsad in December 2018.
The cathlab equipment which we have installed in zenith doctor House is the best machine available in south Gujarat with a 55 inch single large screen facility which is not available in most cathlabs in entire Gujarat which makes image quality crisp and enlarged which makes intervention work easier and besides it has the latest radiation protection software and features like inbuilt stent boost, fluorosave and Digital subtraction angiography and others.
