Dr. Makani brings a strong background in the field of Hypertension, Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (thick heart muscle disease), stress echocardiography and advanced interventional cardiology techniques to St. Mary High Desert Medical Group.

Dr. Makani is an internationally recognized name in the field of hypertension. He has authored or co-authored more than 50 journal publications, book chapters and abstract publications in top medical journals like Journal of American College of Cardiology, British Medical Journal and European Heart Journal. He has also received numerous awards like Young Investigator Award in American Society of Hypertension meeting, Best research award at Annual research fair award at St. Luke’s Roosevelt hospital to name a few, for his research accomplishments. His research focus mirrors his clinical practice: He looks at care of patients with hypertension, coronary artery disease, heart attack or chest pain, heart failure, complex angioplasties, and peripheral vascular disease.

A specialist in cutting-edge minimally invasive procedures such as transradial angioplasty to treat coronary artery disease, Dr. Makani offers procedures that, while still less common at many U.S. hospitals, promise quicker recovery compared to standard methods. For example, he performs transradial angioplasty, which uses a patient’s wrist instead of the groin as the incision point and has a much lower rate of bleeding and faster recovery time.
