“I enjoy taking care of complex arrhythmia problems.”

Provider Bio down arrow

As an electrophysiologist, Dr. Param Sharma spends most of his time treating patients with abnormal heart rhythms. 


Some of these he can cure permanently by using radiofrequency ablation to alter the electrical circuits in the heart that cause these arrhythmias. Other patients may require implantation of a pacemaker or defibrillator.

“Some patients are born with these abnormal circuits while others may occur later in life, sometimes related to acute heart attacks,” he said. “There are a wide variety of patients and these cases can be very complex.”

He often gets patients referred by friends or family members who have been treated by him, which he calls “a big compliment.”

Dr. Sharma also enjoys teaching medical students and residents in Marshfield, as a clinical professor for the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

“To teach these students you need to stay up-to-date. Teaching is a passion of mine,” Dr. Sharma said.

He was recognized for his teaching efforts by receiving the Dr. G.E. Magnin Teaching Award for excellence in medical education.

He earned his medical degree in India. He then completed a residency in internal medicine in New York, and fellowships in cardiology and clinical cardiac electrophysiology, both in Los Angeles.

He prefers living in a smaller community, where he can spend more time with his family. He and his wife, Sudesh, and their two sons enjoy marathon running and are black belts in Tae Kwon Do.
