Dr. Zayd A. Eldadah, MD, PhD, FACC, is a cardiologist who specializes in Cardiac Electrophysiology. Dr. Eldadah’s practice focus is on heart rhythm disorders, including the management of slow heart rates, rapid heart rates, and irregular heart rhythms. His particular focus is state-of-the-art therapies for atrial fibrillation, the most common heart rhythm disorder.
Dr. Eldadah also has extensive experience in the implantation and management of cardiac rhythm devices such as pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs), and biventricular pacemakers and defibrillators. He is highly experienced at catheter ablation therapies for cardiac arrhythmias, including supraventricular tachycardia (SVT), atrial flutter, atrial fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia and others.
Dr. Eldadah is a 1996 graduate of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, where he also earned a PhD in Human Genetics. His doctoral dissertation focused on the molecular biology of cardiovascular diseases. Dr. Eldadah completed training in internal medicine, cardiology and clinical cardiac electrophysiology at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, before being recruited to the faculty of MedStar Washington Hospital Center and the Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2004. He is currently Director of Cardiac Arrhythmia Research and Interim Co-Director of the Electrophysiology Laboratories at the Hospital Center. He is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Georgetown University School of Medicine, and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Medicine at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Dr. Eldadah is the recipient of numerous professional awards, including the Donald W. Reynolds fellowship in cardiac electrophysiology, Howard Silverman Cardiovascular Research Prize from Johns Hopkins, and research awards from the American Society of Human Genetics and the National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Eldadah researches and publishes extensively in his field, and he is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular diseases and clinical cardiac electrophysiology.
