Dr. Ashish Sadhu has been practicing clinical cardiac electrophysiology in Arizona since 2008 and is board certified in Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology. He earned his medical degree from Dr. P.D.M. Medical College in Amravati, India. He completed his Internal Medicine internship and residency from the University of Arizona in Tucson. After completing his Cardiology fellowship from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas he moved to Massachusetts for further sub-specialty training in Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology at University of Massachusetts in Worcester.
Dr. Sadhu has specialized training in performing complex arrhythmia treatments including catheter ablations for atrial fibrillation and left atrial appendage occlusion with the Watchman LAAC as well as expertise in pacemakers, defibrillators and heart failure devices.

Cardiac electrophysiology is a sub-specialty of cardiology which deals with the study of the heart’s electrical system. The term “electrophysiology study” or “EP study” applies to any procedure that requires the insertion of small removable catheters into the heart to make electrical measurements.
Electrophysiology studies may be done to diagnose electrical abnormalities to access the heart for treatment or correction of certain conditions, such as Pacemaker Implantation, ICD Insertion, or Cardiac Ablation.
An irregularity in the heart’s electrical system is called an arrhythmia, or heart rhythm disorder. Rhythm disorders can cause the heart to beat too slowly (Bradycardia) or too fast (Tachyarrhythmia).
For the most common arrhythmias, the procedural success rate by experienced operators is in the range of 90-99%. The risks of the procedure are generally small and often only related to intravenous puncture. Serious cardiac complications are uncommon, but can occur.
