Los Angeles Cardiologist Dr. Nademanee
The Director of Pacific Rim Electrophysiology Research Institute, Koonlawee Nademanee, MD, FACC, FAHA, is a world-renowned cardiologist in the Los Angeles area specializing in cardiac electrophysiology. Practicing for over 30 years, he is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular disease, and cardiac electrophysiology.
Dr. Nademanee is especially well-known and regarded for discovering specialized areas of the heart where arrhythmias originate using a mapping of complex fractionated electrocardiograms (CFAEs). He pioneered a breakthrough treatment for both chronic (persistent) and paroxysmal (intermittent) cardiac arrhythmias called CFAE ablation. This revolutionary technique offers patients quicker recovery times and higher success rates over standard ablation protocols.
The CFAE ablation technique has brought Dr. Nademanee international attention, drawing esteemed physicians from countries around the world including Taiwan, Japan, Italy, and France. An equally diverse patient population travels to electrophysiologist Dr. Nademanee for arrhythmia treatment as he has seen patients from throughout California, across the United States, and around the world.
