KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Andrea Natale M.D., F.A.C.C., F.H.R.S., F.E.S.C.

Pioneer in Electrophysiology Award Winner

Prior to his appointment as Executive Medical Director of the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David’s Medical Center, Dr. Natale was a member of the Cardiovascular Medicine Department at the Cleveland Clinic from 1999 to 2007, serving as Section Head for the Department of Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology and as Medical Director for the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Atrial Fibrillation.

Dr. Natale has also been and currently is on the faculty at a variety of prestigious universities, including Duke and Stanford. He has been an invited lecturer at more than 400 symposia and conferences around the world, and is the author of hundreds of published articles on pacing and electrophysiology. In addition to serving on the editorial boards of major medical journals, he is editor-in-chief of the Journal of Interventional Cardiac Electrophysiology (JICE) and the Journal of Atrial Fibrillation. He is also the National Medical Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology for HCA Healthcare.

Dr. Natale’s greatest reward is restoring his patients to a life free of cardiac arrhythmia. He pioneered a circumferential ultrasound vein-ablation system to correct atrial fibrillation and performed the procedure on the world’s first five patients. He developed some of the current catheter-based cures for atrial fibrillation, and was the first cardiac electrophysiologist in the nation to perform percutaneous epicardial radiofrequency ablation, which is a treatment for people who fail conventional ablation.

A dedicated researcher and pioneer, Dr. Natale focuses on innovative advances in the treatment of atrial fibrillation. His goal is to benefit patient care through technologies such as robotic devices and highly specialized ablation catheters.
