Who We Are

+ Dr. Sudhir S. Shetker


Dr. Sudhir S Shetkar started his medical carrier from Grant Medical College and Sir J.J. Group of Hospitals, Mumbai in the year 1998. Distinguished faculty at GMC as well as the patients imparted a keen interest in him for the medical profession, which culminated in his graduation from GMC in the year 2004 with five distinctions. Thereafter he did his specialization in Internal Medicine from Saurashtra University, Gujarat. Dr. Shetkar joined All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi as a fellow in the department of cardiology and passed as a cardiologist in Dec 2012. During his stint at AIIMS, he got trained in the whole spectrum of cardiology ranging from clinical cardiology to pediatric cardiology, non-invasive cardiology, electrophysiology, and interventional cardiology. Availability of world-class facility for clinical research, high patient volume and added with high clinical acumen of eminent cardiologists, some of whom are the best in India for their respective specialties, groomed him as an all-round cardiologist. He primarily focused on coronary interventions(angioplasty, IVUS, FFR, and OCT), structural heart disease interventions (Device closures and balloon dilations), device therapy of conduction disorders (permanent pacemaker, Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator, Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy) and heart failure management.

He has to his credit numerous research publications in national/international peer-reviewed journals. He has also presented his research in various national and international conferences, which includes the prestigious European Society of Cardiology (ESC) congress. He was the winner of national level Torrent Young Scholar Award (TYSA) cardiology in the year 2012.
He joined Apollo Hospitals, Nashik as a founder consultant cardiologist in 2014 and has been instrumental in establishing a state of the art cardiology department. He is practicing non-invasive cardiology (Trans-thoracic echocardiography, Trans-oesophageal echocardiology, Treadmill stress test, Stress Echo, Holter recording), interventional cardiology (Trans-radial angiography, angioplasty, device closures and pacemaker/AICD implantations) and comprehensive heart failure clinic at Apollo Hospitals.
