Davendra Mehta, MD, PhD
- PROFESSOR | Medicine, Cardiology
Specialties:Cardiovascular Disease, Cardiology
Dr. Mehta is a graduate from the Jawahar Lal Nehru Medical College, Ajmer of the University of Rajasthan. He did his medical residency from the prestigious Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education in Chandigarh in India. He trained in cardiology in the UK, at Western Royal Infirmary in Edinburgh and the Regional Cardiac Center in Leicester. During this time he became a member of the Royal College of Physicians of London. Following his training in cardiology he received a research grant from the University of London. His research was conducted at St Bartholomew's and St George's Hospitals. He researched various aspects of cardiac arrhythmias with publications in the Lancet, Chest, Journal of American College of Cardiology and Circulation. His work on ventricular tachycardia in patients with 'normal heart' was awarded a PhD by the University of London in 1989.
After coming to the United States he was awarded a research grant by the American Heart Association (New Jersey Affiliates). He has been a member of the Cardiology faculty at Mount Sinai Hospital since 1992 and Director of the Electrophysiology Laboratory and arrhythmia section for 8 years. His clinical interests include catheter ablations for management of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. His current research interests include prevention and treatment of ventricular arrhythmias in cardiac sarcoidosis. His is board certified in Medicine, Cardiology and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. He is a member of the Heart Rhythm Society and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. He has authored more than 100 publications and has lectured widely.
