Praneet K. Sharma, M.D.
Cardiology, Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology, Vascular Specialist
Dr. Praneet K. Sharma is Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology, Echocardiography and Internal Medicine. He has received his Cardiology training at Cleveland Clinic.
Dr. Sharma specializes in performing coronary interventions (heart artery blockages), peripheral vascular interventions (blockages in artery to limbs), and structural interventions (such as heart valve damage) with a catheter based technique. He has a special interest in catheter-based treatment of heart artery blockages from the wrist (Radial catheterization). He also provides venous care, performing interventions for patients with venous insufficiency (such as varicose veins and leg ulcers).
Dr. Sharma believes in promotion of health among people at risk for heart disease (primary prevention-before heart and vascular disease has happened), as well as among those who have developed heart disease (secondary prevention).
