A board-certified interventional cardiologist, Dr. Abed Dehnee specializes in all aspects of cardiology, with particular interest in fractional flow reserve (FFR), a guide wire-based procedure that accurately measures blood pressure and flow through a specific part of the coronary artery. FFR is done through a catheter at the time of an angiogram and is useful in assessing whether or not to perform angioplasty or stenting on intermediate blockages. Dr. Dehnee has published three articles on this innovative procedure. He also has special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral vascular disease.

Dr. Dehnee received his medical degree at the Damascus University School of Medicine. He completed an internal medicine residency at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in Chicago, where he also completed a cardiology fellowship. Dr. Dehnee went on to complete an interventional cardiology fellowship at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. Dr. Dehnee is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in cardiovascular disease, interventional cardiology, and internal medicine, and also holds certifications in cardiovascular computed tomography, nuclear cardiology, and echocardiography. He is a registered physician for vascular interpretation by the ARDMS.
