About Me

Biographical Statement:
Dr. Basir specializes in the treatment of complex heart blockage with minimally invasive techniques using balloons and stents. He is one of a handful of people in the country who has completed dedicated training specializing in techniques to open chronic total occlusions or heart blockages that have been completely blocked for many months or years. He is a national leader in the treatment of cardiogenic shock and lectures around the world on the use of temporary heart pumps when the heart is failing.

Care Philosophy:
I believe in taking care of my patients just as I would my own loved ones and family. Having troubles with your heart and needing procedures can be a scary and worrisome experience. I want to be able to hold my patients hand and let them know I will be there for them throughout the procedure to help with any concerns they have and to perform the procedure safely and effectively.

Research Interests:
Dr. Basir is highly published in the treatment of cardiogenic shock when the heart fails due to a heart attack, heart blockage or weakness in the heart muscle. He lectures internationally on the topic and has published numerous article of the subject. He has helped hundreds of sites around the world develop shock teams to care for these very ill patients.

Dr. Basir has also published on the treatment of highly complex heart blockage in the hope of working toward making these procedures safer for patients.
