He then moved to New Haven, Connecticut to undergo training in interventional cardiology and advanced catheter-based techniques in peripheral vascular disease and venous disease at Yale-New Haven Hospital (Yale University School of Medicine). He is board certified in cardiovascular medicine and interventional cardiology.

Though clinical medicine is his primary interest, he remains heavily involved in academic medicine, having authored several peer-reviewed publications and book chapters including one in a major interventional cardiology textbook. As a vascular specialist, Dr. Ramanath teaches endovascular techniques, serves as a national faculty educator for drug coating balloons for the treatment of upper leg arterial blockages, and teaches varicose vein treatments to physicians and surgeons from across the US. He welcomes patients to view his Texas Vein Health Facebook page.
