He has 5 years of experience in treating cardiac ailments. He has gained the majority of his experience by working as a senior faculty in Asia’s largest cardiology institute, the U. N. Mehta Institute of Cardiology and Research Centre (affiliated to B. J. Medical College, Ahmedabad, Gujarat). With an experience of over 5000 interventional and triple that of diagnostic coronary procedures, his interventional skills are beyond question. The interventional services that he extends include complex coronary interventions, including but not limited to use of ancillary cutting edge technologies like rotablation, intravascular ultrasound and optical coherence tomography assisted coronary interventions.
Beyond coronary interventions, he also routinely performs peripheral vascular interventions like that for occluded blood vessels of the limbs, aortic interventions and carotid inteventions. Device therapy for congenital heart diseases like ASD, PDA also come under his forte. Pacemaker implantation is a treatment which corrects a variety of heart rhythm disorders and Dr. Benny has an experience of over 200 such cases.
His greatest pride, however, is having had the opportunity to teach and groom three generations of cardiologists at B. J. Medical College, Ahmedabad and impart his interventional skills to the residents and junior faculty in cardiology.
