What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, premature ventricular complexes, ventricular tachycardia, sudden cardiac arrest, syncope, heart block, and cardiac device infection or malfunction.

Procedures offered: atrial fibrillation device implantation; laser lead extraction; radiofrequency or cryo-catheter ablation, including complex ablation for ventricular tachycardia; premature ventricular complexes.

Describe some of your professional highlights.

I graduated with a bachelor of science in biomedical engineering from Northwestern University in 1998, and with a medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2003.  I completed an internal medicine residency, a cardiovascular disease fellowship, and clinical cardiac electrophysiology fellowship training at Boston Medical Center, the teaching hospital of the Boston University School of Medicine.  After completing my training in 2010, I stayed on as faculty at Boston Medical Center and at Boston University School of Medicine, where I started a laser lead extraction program.  My clinical interests included the management and treatment of all arrhythmias with device or catheter based therapies.  My research interests inlcuded risk stratification and arrhythmias in patient with cardiac sarcoidosis.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

My clinical approach involves developing a therapeutic partnership with my patients to focus on their needs and symptoms while providing the highest quality and evidence-based care of arrhythmias.

Clinical Trials

RAID
This trial is intended to evaluate the effiacy of ranolazine to reduce shocks and clinically relevant ventricular arrhythmias in patients with defibrillators.

PRAEOTRIAN
This trial is intended to evaluate the benefits of a subcutaneous ICD compared to standar transvenous ICDs.

SYMPLICITY-AF
This trial is intended to evalute the efficacy of pulmonary vein isolation plus renal denervation compared to standard PVI alone for the management of paroxysmal and persistent atrial fibrillation.
