Vasanth Vedantham


Cardiologist and electrophysiologist

Dr. Vasanth Vedantham is a cardiac electrophysiologist who cares for patients with heart rhythm disorders. His expertise encompasses catheter ablation (a minimally invasive technique in which heart tissue responsible for abnormal electrical signals is destroyed), implantation of cardiac devices (such as pacemakers and defibrillators) and medications that control arrhythmias.

Vedantham is also an expert in diagnosing and managing cardiac sarcoidosis and other rare disorders that can cause arrhythmias; he often collaborates with UCSF specialists outside of cardiology to care for patients with these complex conditions. Another focus of his practice, as part of the UCSF Cardiovascular Genetics Program, is the diagnosis and treatment of patients with inherited arrhythmia syndromes and inherited heart muscle disorders.

Vedantham directs a laboratory focused on understanding the molecular, cellular and genetic mechanisms that regulate heart rhythm. The long-term goal of this research is to make scientific advances that lead to better ways of treating and preventing arrhythmias.

Vedantham earned his medical degree and doctorate at Harvard Medical School. He completed an internal medicine residency at Brigham and Women's Hospital, followed by fellowships in cardiovascular medicine and cardiac electrophysiology at UCSF.
