Dr. Atul Verma Bio
After graduating from the University of Toronto in internal medicine and cardiology, Dr. Verma attended the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic to study to become an electrophysiologist. An electrophysiologist is a cardiologist specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms, essentially the electrical workings of the heart. He was born and raised in Winnipeg and, fittingly, his father is an electrical engineer and his mother a physician.
Dr. Verma very quickly became a star in his field—an innovator bound and determined to find better methods of treatment. In 2005, at the encouragement of Dr. Zaev Wulffhart, Dr. Verma came to Southlake to continue the groundbreaking work he had begun in Cleveland.
Much of Dr. Verma’s work centres around cardiac arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) and specifically atrial fibrillation (AF). Affecting millions of people worldwide, AF is a condition in which the upper chambers of the heart beat rapidly and erratically, affecting the heart’s ability to adequately pump blood to its lower chambers and the rest of the body. The condition is responsible for 15 to 20 per cent of all strokes and is a leading cause of hospitalizations. The most common treatment for AF is ablation or burning inside the heart. The resulting scar tissue helps return the heart to a regular rhythm.
Dr. Verma has authored or co-authored more than 70 articles and abstracts on electrophysiology issues, ablation and arrhythmia, including a study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. He has also received many honours and awards, including the first ever Southlake Research Award of Excellence in 2012.
