  • Dr. Edward P. Gerstenfeld, MD.

    Dr Gerstenfeld is the Melvin Scheinman Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Cardiac Electrophysiology and Arrhythmia Service at the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center. Dr Gerstenfeld received his undergraduate degree from Duke University in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering and a Masters Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University before completing medical school at Northwestern University in Chicago. He completed medical residency at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Cardiology Fellowship at the University of Massachusetts, and Cardiac Electrophysiology fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr Gerstenfeld has published > 100 peer-reviewed manuscripts, editorials and book chapters on cardiac arrhythmias. He served for 7 years on the national Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology board writing committee and is on the editorial board of multiple cardiology journals. Dr Gerstenfeld specializes in the treatment of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia.

  • Dr. Christopher R. Ellis, MD, FACC, FHRS.

    Christopher R. Ellis, MD, FACC, FHRS completed medical school at University of Rochester, NY in 2000. He completed Internal Medicine-Pediatrics residency at Vanderbilt Medical Center and was appointed the Hugh J. Morgan Chief Resident for Internal Medicine 2004-2005. His Cardiovascular Medicine Fellowship at Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute spanned 2005-2008. Dr. Ellis then worked under Dr. Fred Morady at University of Michigan 2008-2009 completing Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship before re-joining Vanderbilt Heart and Vascular Institute in July 2009 as Assistant Professor of Medicine. He has since expanded his clinical practice to reach a referral base for the greater Southeastern US in complex left atrial catheter ablation, laser lead extraction, and left atrial appendage ligation. He helped create the hybrid AF surgical ablation program at Vanderbilt alongside colleagues Steven J. Hoff and S. Patrick Whalen, and continues to work with Atricure ,Inc., to design clinical trials for longstanding persistent AF ablation (DEEP hybrid AF), and left atrial appendage ligation for stroke prevention. He has created the Left Atrial Appendage Closure (LAAC- LARIAT and Watchman) program at Vanderbilt, and is helping design a prospective randomized trial of LARIAT (Sentre Heart, Inc.) LAA ligation, plus catheter ablation, versus catheter ablation alone, for persistent AF treatment. Looking forward, goals for Dr. Ellis include continued advancement of AF therapy, including unique collaboration in translational genomics work at Vanderbilt, and helping spearhead the landmark clinical trials to prove that ligation of the LAA prevents stroke in AF patients.

  • Dr. Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, MD, FACC, FHRS.

    Dr. Dhanunjaya Lakkireddy, MD, F.A.C.C, FHRS. is a board certified electrophysiology expert and practices at Mid-America Cardiology and The University of Kansas Hospital Clinics in Kansas City, KS, USA. He has several distinctions in clinical and research career to his credit and serves as an associate editor for Journal of Atrial Fibrillation.

  • Dr. Eduardo B. Saad, MD, PhD, FHRS.

    Dr. Saad completed medical training and cardiology fellowship at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, followed fellowship in Electrophysiology and Pacing at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, USA. Further PhD program and thesis was performed at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Main areas of scientific interest are in catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachyarrhythmias as well as cardiac ressynchronization therapy and left atrial appendage occlusion. Currently Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing and Director of the Center for Atrial Fibrillation at Hospital Pró-Cardíaco, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Scientific Director of the Brazilian Society of Cardiac Arrhythmias (SOBRAC).

  • Dr. Prashanthan Sanders, MBBS, PhD.

    Professor Prash Sanders is Director of the Centre for Heart Rhythm Disorders at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI), University of Adelaide and Royal Adelaide Hospital in Adelaide, Australia. He undertook electrophysiology training in Melbourne and Bordeaux before establishing his own group. He now leads a team of clinicians, researcher and students with a focus on all aspects of understanding and treating atrial fibrillation.

  • Dr. Noel Gerard Boyle, MD, PhD.

    Dr. Boyle is Professor of Medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and Director of the Cardiac EP Labs and EP Fellowship Program at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Boyle earned his medical degree at Trinity College Dublin School of Medicine, Ireland. He completed internship and residency in Internal Medicine at Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, and fellowships in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at Beth Israel Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. He has been on faculty at UCLA since 1996. His research interests include mechanisms and treatment of atrial fibrillation, atrial fibrillation in heart failure and outcomes in VT and AF ablation. He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the European Society of Cardiology, the Heart Rhythm Society and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland.

  • Dr. Sanjeev Saksena, MD, FACC, FESC, FAHA, FHRS.

    Dr. Saksena is Clinical Professor of Medicine at UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson School of Medicine, and Medical Director of the Electrophysiology Research Foundation. He has been the Director of the Cardiovascular Institute at Atlantic Health Systems (East) from 1999-2004, and Director of the Arrhythmia& Pacemaker Service from 1989. He has also been President of the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology (NASPE) and Chair of its Government Relations Committee, and member for governmental affairs committees for the Heart Rhythm Society and the American College of Cardiology. He is the Founding editor and current Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology and has been the Editor of the Government Relations column for PACE and remains an active consultant to governmental and private health care organizations. He has been an active clinical and applied basic science investigator since 1980, and has held grants from NHLBI, industry and the American Heart Association.

  • Dr. Young-Hoon Kim, MD, PhD.
