Part of: Biography:

Dr Elijah Behr is a Clinical Cardiologist and Electrophysiologist with an interest in all aspects of the treatment of arrhythmias including ablation and device therapies and cardiac genetic disorders. Dr Behr’s undergraduate medical education was completed at Cambridge University and Guy’s Hospital, London with distinction. Dr Behr was appointed to his current role in 2007 having undertaken full time clinical training and research at St George’s.

Dr Behr is an international expert in the management of patients and families with cardiac genetic disorders that can cause sudden death – sudden arrhythmic death syndrome (SADS) . He is secretary of the Association for Inherited Cardiac Conditions and is UK lead on the International Guidelines Writing Committee member. He co-leads research in the 100,000 genomes project on inherited heart rhythm disturbances.

Dr Behr manages and treats all forms of arrhythmia and routinely undertakes simple and complex pacing including biventricular pacing and implantable cardiovertor defibrillator implantation. He also has extensive experience in ablation of simple arrhythmias such as supraventricular tachycardia, and more complex procedures such as ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation using both conventional radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation including the cryoballoon tretament of atrial fibrillation.

His research interest is in sudden death and its genetic, clinical, epidemiological and pathological investigation as well as drug-induced arrhythmia. Dr Behr has published and presented widely on these topics, both nationally and internationally.
