Lecture Series: Atrial Fibrillation: Implications, Options

Dr. Saliba

Please join us at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 9 in the Cultural Center Theatre for “Atrial Fibrillation: Implications and Therapeutic Options: Where are We Going?” presented by Walid Saliba, M.D. of Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio. Dr. Saliba’s lecture is the first of five in this season’s Medical Center Lecture Series.

Dr.  Saliba is Director of Cleveland Clinic’s Electrophysiology Lab, Associate Section Head of the Pacing and Electrophysiology Section, Co-Director of the Ventricular Arrhythmia Center, Medical Director of the Center for Atrial Fibrillation, and a Staff Cardiologist in the Section of Cardiac Electrophysiology and Pacing in the Robert and Suzanne Tomsich Department of Cardiovascular Medicine.

Dr. Saliba is board-certified in cardiac electrophysiology, cardiovascular disease and internal medicine. He is trained in all aspects of clinical cardiac electrophysiology and pacing, including catheter ablation of complex arrhythmias, implantation of cardiac pacemakers and defibrillators, placement of left atrial occlusion devices and extraction of implanted pacemaker and ICD leads using laser technology.

He has been an invited lecturer at many national meetings and symposia and has authored and co-authored articles in leading scientific journals such as Circulation, Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the American Journal of Cardiology, Cardiovascular Electrophysiology Review and the Journal of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology.

“The best reward is when the patient comes back to see you in the clinic, feeling great, and they say: ‘I have a new life,’” Saliba said.

Cleveland Clinic is nationally recognized for the world’s best cardiovascular care.

Join us Jan. 16 for our next lecture in the series, “The Diagnosis and Treatment of Tremors” with Justin Sporrer, M.D. For information about these and other lectures in the series, check out the Lecture Series page.
