Profile

Areas of Interest

A versatile surgeon, Dr. Paramesh performs adult cardiac procedures such as open heart coronary artery bypass and heart valve repair/replacement, surgery for atrial fibrillation, aortic surgery and transmyocardial revascularization. He was pivotal in the heart transplant program at the University of Arizona prior to joining Gundersen. His continued interest in surgical management of heart failure has made him the driving force behind our LVAD (left ventricular assist device) program. An implanted LVAD helps pump blood for a patient with a weakened heart while waiting for a heart transplant or for the heart to recover, or as a permanent solution. Other interests include complex aortic surgery including endovascular and hybrid approaches for aortic disease. Dr. Paramesh also performs a variety of thoracic or chest wall surgeries.
