Dr. Chandrashekhar was born in Bengaluru, India and has been residing in the United States since early childhood. He grew up on the East coast before attending the State University of New York at Buffalo where he received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and a minor in Mathematics. He worked in industry at NASA in Houston, Texas as well as at Alcatel Telecom. Dr. Chandrashekhar then earned an M.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Dallas.

 

Upon entering the field of medicine and completion of his Internal Medicine Residency, he went straight into a competitive Sleep Medicine Fellowship at the New Jersey Neuroscience Institute at the JFK Medical Center in Edison, New Jersey. He was trained by international experts – Arthur Walters, M.D., Sudhansu Chokroverty, M.D. F.R.C.P. and Divya Gupta, M.D.

 

His clinical interest is the Link Between Sleep Disorders and General Internal Medicine. Other research interests including Obstructive Sleep Apnea-Hypopnea Syndrome, Facial Imaging for Sleep Apnea for Airway Analysis, Cephalometric Analysis and Biomedical Engineering.

 

By identifying problems as a sleep specialist, Dr. Chandrashekhar hopes to bring his dual training in engineering and medicine to bear on improving the quality of life or perhaps to definitively cure patients with sleep-disordered breathing in the future. He likes to use a multi-team approach with the aid of dentists, orthodontists, weight management, clinical psychologists and surgeons when necessary.
