Patient Care Philosophy

I believe in helping patients to be in charge of their care. I see the healing process as a partnership and value my patients' role in this partnership just as highly as mine. Another key value I hold is transparency. I believe that my patients deserve simple, clear, easy to understand explanations of their conditions and treatment options available to them. 

Personal Interests

Outside of the hospital, I enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with my wife Sapna and little girl Kavya.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Shivaram specialized in minimally invasive, image-guided treatments for vascular malformations, arterial and venous disorders, solid organ tumors, and a variety of other conditions.
