Cardiac electrophysiologist

Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine) and, by courtesy, of Health Research and Policy at the Palo Alto Veterans Affairs Health Care System
Mintu Turakhia M.D. M.A.S. is a cardiac electrophysiologist, outcomes researcher, and Assistant Professor of Medicine at Stanford University. He is Director of Cardiac Electrophysiology at the Palo Alto VA Health Care System and is an Associate Investigator at the Center for Health Care Evaluation (CHCE). In his clinical role, Dr. Turakhia performs catheter ablation, device implantation, and lead extraction. Dr. Turakhia has an active clinical research program, with funding from AHA, VA, NIH, the medical device industry, and foundations. His research program aims to improve the treatment of heart rhythm disorders, by evaluating quality and variation of care, comparative and cost-effectiveness of therapies, and risk prediction. Dr. Turakhia has extensive expertise in using large administrative and claims databases for this work. His TREAT-AF retrospective study of over 400,000 patients with newly-diagnosed AF is the largest known research cohort of AF patients. His other research interests include technology assessment of new device-based therapies and the impact of changing health policy and reform on the delivery of arrhythmia care. Dr. Turakhia is a Fellow of the American Heart Association, American College of Cardiology, and Heart Rhythm Society.
