For more than three decades, his ethical values, dedication to exceptional cardiovascular care, and respect for his patients have led him to become one of the foremost cardiologists in the field.

On a professional level, he is an active member of the American Heart Association, and has co-authored several research papers in leading medical journals and has delivered and chaired many grand rounds and cardiac catheterization conferences.


From 1997 to 2013, Dr. Sahni was the Medical Director of the cardiac catheterization lab at Raritan Bay Hospital in Amboy, New Jersey, where he was responsible for the inception and development of a cardiac catheterization program focused on diagnostic coronary angiography, acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) interventions, and elective angioplasty.
