Dr. Peykar's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Peykar "In July of 2007, Dr. Sidney Peykar began his practice of electrophysiology in Florida. Dr. Peykar spent considerable time and effort to establish the EP program including setting up equipment and training lab staff for complex arrhythmia ablation first in Charlotte County and then expanded his practice to Sarasota. His goal was to be the first to offer state of the art EP care for Southwest Florida.Prior to his arrival there were no physicians performing this procedure in Southwest Florida. Since then he has performed more than 2500 procedures and more than 1500 cardiac ablations. He is currently the electrophysiologist doing the highest volume of cardiac ablations on the west coast of Florida - from Tampa to Naples. He is performing about 10-12 atrial fibrillation ablations a week, and will perform more than 400 atrial fibrillation ablations this year.With additional training at the University Bordeaux, Hospital Haut - Leveque in Bordeaux, France- the world's foremost institution for atrial fibrillation ablation- he performs the most advanced technique for cure of persistent (longer lasting) atrial fibrillation. Dr. Peykar prides himself on offering not only technical expertise, but also a personal experience. A consultation with him involves aninteractive discussion about the causes of the arrhythmia, possible solutions (both with medications and invasive procedures), and a frank discussion about possible risks. Patients rarely leave a visit with Dr. Peykar without detailed illustrations that he uses to clarify these issues.All procedures that Dr. Peykar recommends and schedules are performed by him personally. His lab team is trained to support the cases, but as Dr. Peykar says, My hands are the only ones on the catheter." While this may seem obvious, it is in sharp contrast to some of the academic centers that patients are often referred to, where a fellow in training is performing the bulk of the invasive procedure under a senior physician's hands-off supervision.Fellow, American College of Cardiology, diplomate of the American Board of Internal Medicine, with subspecialty board certification in Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Caridac Electrophysiology.""

Thank you John- I am happy you are pleased with your care. As you know I take a holistic approach to the treatment of atrial fibrillation management. Lots of time is spent discussing lifestyle modification such as weight loss and optimal treatment of conditions such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea and diabetes.

Dr Peykar spent a lot of time going over all my options. I had the cryo-balloon ablation for atrial fibrillation . I feel much better. His staff Michelle and Amanda are excellent as well
