His current interests include improving techniques in atrial fibrillation ablation, minimally invasive closure of the left atrial appendage for stroke prevention, and management of congestive heart failure with biventricular devices.  Dr. Sanghvi actively participates in national clinical research trials and has authored several papers on the topic of arrhythmia management.

"I believe that each patient deserves attention, compassion, respect, and the opportunity to understand their particular ailment. I strive to provide personalized care and take pride in being able to clearly communicate with my patients. My reward is seeing a patient successfully and safely complete a procedure and witness the often immediate improvement in their quality of life.”
