Areas of Interest

Dr. Gehi’s clinical interests include pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and device extraction, as well as catheter ablation for SVT, VT, atrial flutter, and atrial fibrillation. Dr. Gehi’s research focus includes techniques of ablation for atrial fibrillation (including hybrid ablation), processes of care in the management of atrial fibrillation, and outcomes research in atrial fibrillation through complex analyses of big data.


“My career in academic electrophysiology is thoroughly rewarding. Clinically, it brings me great satisfaction to help a patient overcome the distress a dysrhythmia can produce. Whether by performing a catheter ablation, implanting a device, or simply providing reassurance that worrisome symptoms are benign, I truly enjoy helping patients through their illness. Additionally, my position also allows me to continue investigations into improving care for patients with cardiac dysrhythmia, by improving systems of care and developing more precise ablation techniques. Finally, I am able to help future physicians develop the knowledge and skills for success in medicine, cardiology, and electrophysiology.”
