    Collapse Overview
    Gordon Ho, MD, is a physician-scientist developing novel technologies to improve personalized therapy of heart rhythm disorders. As a board certified cardiac electrophysiologist, he takes care of patients with fast, slow and irregular heart rhythms by performing minimally-invasive procedures to treat atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. Using his biomedical engineering background, Dr. Ho collaborates with researchers at the UCSD Jacobs School of Engineering to develop computer-based mapping techniques to improve patient-specific therapy of all arrhythmias. Secondly, he is studying how to use novel high resolution cardiac imaging techniques to improve accuracy of catheter and non-invasive ablation therapy of ventricular arrhythmias. Thirdly, he is investigating the mechanisms and targeted treatment of refractory atrial fibrillation. For these projects, he has been awarded research funding from the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, and Abbott Laboratories. Dr. Ho has been published in medical journals including Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Clinical Electrophysiology.
    Dr. Ho completed internship and residency at Stanford University and fellowship training in general cardiology and advanced subspecialty training in cardiac electrophysiology at UCSD. He earned his medical degree and undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering at UCSD. Dr. Ho is board certified in internal medicine, general cardiology, and cardiac electrophysiology. He is a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society, American College of Cardiology, and member of the American Heart Association.
