  • Biography

    Dr. Mathur is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease and Interventional Cardiology. He has additional board certifications in Echocardiography and Nuclear Cardiology. He specializes in providing comprehensive evaluation and treatment of heart and vascular diseases. 

    Dr. Mathur provides comprehensive evaluation and cares for patients experiencing symptoms that could indicate underlying heart or peripheral vascular disease. Such symptoms include, but are not limited to, chest pain, shortness of breath, swelling in legs, varicose veins, leg pain, passing out spells, TIA, stroke, palpitations, atrial fibrillation, CHF, etc.  

    Dr. Mathur specializes in office-based minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of varicose veins of the legs. He has been performing these procedures since 2015 and has extensive experience in managing vein disease. Dr. Mathur performs both radiofrequency (heat-based) and VenaSeal (glue-based) ablation procedures for varicose vein treatment. These procedures are performed in an office setting in less than one hour, and patients can get back to routine activities the same day of the procedure. These procedures are covered by most insurance plans.

    Dr. Mathur has a special interest in treating blocked arteries of the heart with minimally invasive procedures (i.e., cardiac catheterization, coronary angiogram, coronary angioplasty). He has been performing these procedures since 2014. He uses the latest technology and equipment to perform these procedures at Hartford Healthcare’s cardiac catheterization laboratory. He uses advanced catheter-based techniques like optical coherence tomography and intravascular ultrasound imaging to accurately assess blockages in the arteries of the heart (i.e., coronary arteries) and treat them with newer generation drug-coated stents. Use of advanced technology and precise stenting techniques has enabled Dr. Mathur to provide excellent short- and long-term results for his patients after coronary stenting procedures. He performs most of these procedures via the radial artery (in the wrist), enabling improved patient satisfaction, quick recovery, and early discharge.

    Dr. Mathur went to medical school at the University of Delhi, Maulana Azad Medical College, in India, following which he moved to the United States and completed residency and fellowship training in cardiovascular disease at Hartford Hospital and the University of Connecticut. During his fellowship training at Hartford Hospital, Dr. Mathur did extensive research in trying to understand the risk factors that lead to the development of coronary heart disease. Dr. Mathur won the prestigious Young Investigator Award for his research presentation at the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology in September 2009. Subsequently, Dr. Mathur has published several research papers in reputed scientific journals towards better understanding risk factors for developing heart disease. 

    Dr. Mathur has written a chapter on ”Sudden Death in Adult Athletes” for the book titled Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity. In this chapter, Dr. Mathur discusses the causes of sudden death in athletes over 40 years of age and preventive strategies to avoid such catastrophic events. Dr. Mathur likes to share this publication with his patients who are interested in learning about sudden death in adults during physical activity.
