Dr. Samin Sharma on Interventional Cardiology

Mount Sinai's Dr. Samin Sharma discusses interventional cardiology, which focues on diagnosing and treating heart disease by invasive procedures, such as cardiac catheterization and stenting. Dr. Samin K. Sharma performs over 1500 complex coronary interventions annually (the highest in the country) while achieving an extremely low complication rate. According to New York State Department of Health reports, he has the highest angioplasty success rate (lowest mortality less than 0.1 percent) for an interventional cardiologist in the state since 1994. Under Dr. Sharma's leadership, Mount Sinai Heart has become one of the best and busiest centers in New York, providing excellent care for all types of simple and complex high-risk heart patients. In addition to coronary interventions, Dr. Sharma specializes in the non-surgical treatment of mitral and aortic stenosis (balloon valvuloplasty).
