NY Daily News - "Daily Checkup: Cardiologist Dr. Samin Sharma of Mount Sinai is an Expert at Treating Aortic Stenosis"
As the Director of Clinical and Interventional Cardiology at Mount Sinai, Dr. Samin Sharma specializes in treating patients for blockages of the heart’s arteries and valves.
Dr. Samin Sharma performs more than 1,500 coronary procedures a year. For millions of Americans, one slowly-building part of the aging process is aortic stenosis, which affects five percent of the general population by age 70 and twenty percent by 90. "In the same way that blockages can form in the arteries that lead to the heart, the aortic valve can become rigid and closed off due to calcium deposits," says Sharma.
