Dr. Luigi Di Biase is Section Head of Electrophysiology, Director of Arrhythmia Services, and Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at Einstein/Montefiore. In addition, he serves as Senior Researcher at the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute at St. David's Medical Center, Austin, Texas. Improving patient care is the heart of Dr. Di Biase's mission. He believes that this is possible through dedicated clinical practice associated to cutting-edge clinical research. Dr. Di Biase's research focuses on cardiology and electrophysiology with specific emphasis on catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias performed either manually or with robotic catheter navigation. Additionally, his research focuses on heart failure, particularly cases treated with cardiac resynchronization therapy devices. He is a 2000 graduate (summa cum laude) of the medical school and a 2004 graduate (summa cum laude) of the cardiology residency program at the University of Bari, Bari, Italy. In 2006, he completed a second-level master degree in Electrophysiology and Pacing (summa cum laude) at the University of Insubria, Varese, Italy. Dr. Di Biase is the author of more than 400 publications in indexed journals, about 500 abstracts, and 16 electrophysiology book chapters. He has presented at numerous national and international conferences as an invited speaker.
