About Me

I chose to specialize in electrophysiology, a branch of cardiology that focuses on heart rhythm disorders, because of my interest in helping people who have or need implanted pacemakers and implantable defibrillators to help control or monitor their heart rhythms. Since 1988, I have implanted more than 8,000 devices and removed more than 3,000 pacing and defibrillator leads.

Every person has unique needs for how a pacing or defibrillator device should interact with his or her heart. I work with my patients to ensure that their devices provide the best heart rate and function specific to their needs.

I also treat people who may need their chronically implanted pacing and defibrillator leads and wires removed, due to infection or lead failures. I strive to do what is best for my patients, and many times I can resolve a problem without surgery.

If surgery is required, we offer multiple procedures, including laser extraction, which I have been performing since 1994. In order to provide people with the most complete care, I work with a team of excellent echocardiologists, radiologists, and interventional cardiologists at the Heart Rhythm Center at NYU Langone.

I regularly consult for cardiac rhythm, extraction, and biomedical device companies about the design of their new technologies and have participated in numerous clinical trials for their improvement. Additionally, I enjoy teaching cardiology and electrophysiology fellows about device implants and management techniques in the clinical setting. Currently, I serve as the president of the board of directors of the International Board of Heart Rhythm Examiners and have been a member of the exam-writing committee since 1992.
