Randy Lee, MD
Dr. Lee is a Cardiologist and a Cardiac Electrophysiologist who specializes in the treatment of arrhythmias and prevention of stroke. He is interested in improving outcomes of catheter ablation of complex arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia; and is actively involved in the development of tools and techniques to improve ablation procedures. Along with his cardiovascular surgery colleagues, he has developed new hybrid epicardial/endocardial procedures that have demonstrated improved efficacy in persistent atrial fibrillation patients who have previously failed catheter ablation. He has pioneered devices for stroke prevention and initiated device-based therapies for stroke prevention at UCSF.
In addition to the development of devices and techniques for the treatment of arrhythmias and embolic stroke prevention, Dr. Lee has an active cardiac tissue engineering laboratory for myocardial repair/reconstruction. His research focuses on cellular and molecular aspects of cardiac arrhythmias and vascular regeneration, as well as in situ tissue engineering approaches for the treatment of heart failure and arrhythmias.
