CUTV News Radio Spotlights Dr. Ramzan Zakir

New Brunswick, NJ – Dr. Ramzan Zakir is a widely sought after interventional cardiologist and owner and director of The Heart and Vascular Institute of Central Jersey.

“My specialty is complex cardiovascular intervention and determining the presence of blockages in my patient’s arteries,” says Dr. Zakir.  “This includes individuals that have chest pain and heart attacks as well as patients that have pain when they walk and non-healing wounds. When people get blockages and also have a wound in one of their extremities they become dangerously at risk for an amputation. With our expert techniques we are able to establish blood flow and save patients from having to face amputation and prevent any further trauma.”

“Living a healthy lifestyle is categorically essential to overall good health,” says Dr. Zakir. “I highly recommend the Mediterranean diet which includes more fish and healthy fats like avocadoes and olive oil.  Prevention of type 2 diabetes, making certain your cholesterol is where it should be, and keeping your blood pressure low are all extremely effective.”

Dr. Zakir is extremely active in clinical research for complex coronary and endovascular interventions. He is also a reputable world-wide guest lecturer.

 “The mission of our clinic is to continue to help as many patients as we possibly can,” says Dr. Zakir. “I strongly advise people that no matter how much we get caught up in our daily lives — it’s extremely critical to be mindful of taking the most optimal care of our bodies because prevention is always key.”
