Associate Professor of Medicine Director, Cardiac Electrophysiology
University of Chicago, School of Medicine, Chicago, IL, US
Dr Roderick Tung, MD, is an internationally renowned cardiologist and specialist in cardiac electrophysiology. Dr Tung is an expert in the management of heart rhythm disorders (arrhythmias), with a particular focus on advanced therapies for atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias. He specializes in arrhythmia management through catheter ablation — a procedure that targets and cauterizes abnormal tissue to eliminate heart rhythm irregularities.
He currently serves as the principal investigator for several prospective randomized ventricular tachycardia ablation clinical trials focusing on the role of robotic navigation, high-density multielectrode mapping, and early intervention to improve patient survival. Dr. Tung's work has been published in numerous respected, peer-reviewed journals, including Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, Heart Rhythm, Circulation: Arrhythmia Electrophysiology and Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology.
