World-Renowned Cardiologist Joins Scripps Clinic

Andrea Natale, MD, an internationally recognized leader in arrhythmia management and ablation procedures, was named the director of interventional electrophysiology at Scripps Clinic.


Dr. Natale pioneered a new circumferential ultrasound vein-ablation system to correct atrial fibrillation and performed the world’s first five procedures. He also developed some of the current catheter-based cures for atrial fibrillation and was the nation’s first electrophysiologist to perform percutaneous epicardial radiofrequency ablation, a treatment for patients who fail conventional ablation.


His recent appointment was publicized by local and national media, including WebMD’s theheart.org.
