Dr. Vora performs numerous cardiac procedures at local hospitals and is also active in Clinical Research Trials. Dr. Vora’s most recent participation in the clinical study “Improve-IT” just recently made national headlines with Vytorin being positive for prevention of heart attacks.

In addition, Dr. Vora was the first cardiologist in the area to:

  • Insert drug-eluting stents, which reduce the rate of recurring coronary artery blockage
  • Perform radial (wrist) artery approach for catheterization, 1996
  • Offer External Counter Pulsation for angina patients
  • Do rotational atherectomy of coronary stenosis and peripheral arteries
