An Interventional Cardiologist with nearly 20 years of well-rounded clinical, scientific research and academic experience, Dr Haresh Mehta has had global exposure to the art and science of Interventional Cardiology. Having worked closely with the world's best Interventional Cardiologists known for their pioneering scientific & research contribution, developing his skills and expertise. Being a part of many ground-breaking research projects and establishing new frontiers in Interventional Cardiology has always kept him motivated. He would like to continue contributing extensively to the growth, development and scientific progress of Interventional Cardiology in India and across the world.

Previous experience

  • At University Hospital, Bern, Switzerland, I had perfected Interventional Cardiology including various types of angiographies viz. coronary, pulmonary, cerebral, carotid, peripheral angiography and aortograms, complex angioplasties, and other techniques such as percutaneous closure of congenital heart defects like atrial septal defects, patent foramen ovale, patent ductus arteriosus and ventricular septal defects among other highly skilled procedures.
  • I have been a fellow at Department of Coronary & Peripheral interventions, Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, USA and Hanusch University Hospital, Vienna, Austria. At Lenox Hill Hospital, New York, I learnt the art of using protection devices, while I perfected my understanding of Rotational Atherectomy at Kings Hospital, London and Hanusch University Hospital, Vienna, Austria. This procedure requires technical finesse and the patient can achieve results equivalent to surgical intervention devoid of risks associated with surgery.
  • I am a visiting faculty at Department of Cardiology at University Hospital, Bern, Switzerland. Apart from my own clinical practice, I am also attached to most of the prominent medical institutions in Mumbai such as Lilavati Hospital & Research Centre, Nanavati Hospital and Saifee Hospital among others.
  • Having been exposed to multiple aspects of Interventional Cardiology, I have handled a wide range of patient cases addressing valvular heart disease catheterization, congenital heart disease catheterization, balloon mitral valvuloplasty, balloon aortic valvuloplasty, balloon pulmonary valvuloplasty, co-oarctation dilatation, sub aortic membrane dilatation etc.
  • I am actively associated with various medical bodies such
