Joshua Cooper, MD, FACC, FHRS

Director, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Temple University Hospital

Professor, Medicine, Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University

Dr Cooper graduated from Washington University School of Medicine, and then went on to complete his fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, MA

He has a keen interest in all things to do with pacing and electrophysiology and has published extensively on many and varied topics.

Just some of his passions include complex arrhythmia management and catheter ablation including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia; pacemaker, defibrillator (ICD) and biventricular devices; His-bundle pacing; laser lead extraction; left atrial appendage occlusion and inherited arrhythmia syndromes.

Most importantly he is a strong advocate for patient education and empowerment, encouraging all medical decisions to be made by the patient and doctor together.
