Biography

Andrea Natale, MD, is a world recognized leader in the field of electrophysiology who specializes in the use of percutaneous catheter ablation to treat complex atrial fibrillation. He pioneered a circumferential ultrasound vein-ablation system used to correct atrial fibrillation, performing the world’s first five procedures. He was the nation’s first electrophysiologist to perform percutaneous epicardial radiofrequency ablation, a treatment for patients who fail conventional ablation.


Dr. Natale was the head of cardiovascular physiopathology at the Italian Air Force’s Aerospace Research Centre and served as director of the electrophysiology laboratory at Duke University and director of the electrophysiology program at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. He also headed the cardiac electrophysiology section at Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.


Dr. Natale’s greatest professional reward is restoring his patient’s lives free of cardiac arrhythmias. In his spare time he enjoys skiing and playing tennis. Dr. Natale also speaks Italian.
