He specializes in minimally invasive techniques to open up blocked arteries of the heart to re-establish blood flow to the heart muscle. This procedure is used to treat angina and can be life-saving in certain situations. He uses latest technologies like intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography in addition to coronary angiography for optimal assessment and treatment of coronary artery disease with stents.

    He also has a special interest in treating peripheral vascular disease and specializes in opening blocked arteries going to the legs with minimally invasive techniques involving balloons and stents. This procedure can relieve leg pain and prevent limb amputation in certain situations.

    He has a particular interest in treating vein disease of the legs like varicose veins. He uses minimally invasive procedures like radiofrequency ablation and sclerotherapy to treat the diseased veins of the legs.
