Dr. Sandeep Sharma, MD
I was one of the first doctors to bring Interventional Nephrology to Pittsburgh. I have been in practice since 2006 and routinely services patients not only from Pittsburgh, but also from across Western PA to Ohio and West Virginia. I have received Board Certifications in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Nephrology. I am also certified by the American Society of Interventional Nephrology. I received my training in interventional procedures from renowned interventionalist, Dr. James McGuckin, and Vascular Surgeon, Dr. John Ross. As a Nephrologist, I feel I bring a unique perspective to the field of Interventional Nephrology. I have a better understanding of the needs of a dialysis patient and what is expected of a dialysis treatment. I perform over 1,000 dialysis-related procedures per year with a less than 1% complication rate. My goal is to have you leave with a well-functioning access that will provide maximum benefit to your dialysis treatments. I have given presentations at National conferences as well as locally for the Fistual First initiative. I routinely provides education to dialysis nurses and technicians on the intricacies of access management. He is a board member of the National Kidney Foundation and a strong proponent of patient education. I am active within the community to educate people about kidney disease and transplantation. I specialize in all aspects of hemodilalysis access maintenance, and dialysis catheter placement. I welcome you and your family to our brand new, state-of-the-art Surgical center here in Cranberry Twp. The location is less than 0.5 miles from the exit off of Interstate 79.
