Northside Heart Specialists and Dr. Niraj Sharma are merging with Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute, effective Nov. 1. Dr. Sharma will continue to serve patients in Athens, Cumming and Duluth, and is returning to practice in Lawrenceville.
The researchers and cardiologists at Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute offer comprehensive cardiovascular care, performing state-of-the-art techniques in interventional cardiology, cardio-oncology, advanced heart failure care, electrophysiology and imaging. With the merger, Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute will have 11 locations across the Atlanta region - in Athens, Braselton, Canton, Cumming, Duluth, Holly Springs, Lawrenceville, Midtown Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and Dawsonville.
Patients who currently have appointments at Northside Heart Specialists in Athens and Duluth will notice little difference other than the name change. Patients of the Cumming office will automatically be transferred to Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute's Cumming office on the same Northside Hospital Forsyth campus.
Dr. Sharma is board certified in both cardiovascular disease and cardiac electrophysiology. In addition to implanting pacemakers and defibrillators (ICDs), his interests include complex ablations and being involved in new innovations and research. Dr. Sharma is deeply experienced in the entire cardiovascular system and specializes in ablations for atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia, left atrial appendage (LAA) closure implants, and other minimally invasive stroke prevention procedures.
