He is an expert interventional cardiologist with a wide range of experience. He performs surgeries including coronary angioplasty with stents (including complex treatments like rotablation and shock wave therapy), structural cardiac interventions (ASD and PFO closure), and pacemaker implantation.

    Mr Andrew Northeast
    General Surgery
    Is a colleague

    "Punit is an extremely astute and capable cardiologist and enormously popular with his patients As I look after the pipes and he does the pump we have a large number in common. Perhaps the highest recommendation is that he is my cardiologist enabling me to keep my pilots license in the teeth of bureaucratic intransigence over erroneous investigations!"
