Bio

Dr. Khaled Awad is one of the few cardiologists holding these boards simultaneously:

German and European Board of Interventional Cardiology
German and European Board of Electrophysiology
German and European Board of Heart Device Therapy

Dr. Awad is patient and institution-oriented with over 20 years of experience in reputable hospitals. He assists in implementing one of the newest technologies in pacemaker implantation using the physiologic conduction system at the left bundle branch, a technology conducted in only few centers worldwide. He is a high-end electrophysiologist as well, performing all types of ablations, mostly in near-zero fluoroscopy. He is well published and a peer reviewer of international and German medical journals. He is a professional member of the German Cardiac Society, the European Society of Cardiology, and the European Heart Rhythm Association

Treatments

– Interventional cardiology with management of complex PCI’s
– Coronary physiology using new techniques, such as Coroventis (Abbott)
– LAA and PFO Occluder
– Ablation of all types of supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias (atrial and ventricular tachycardias, atrial and ventricular extrasystole, etc)
– Tracking of undiagnosed heart palpitations and tachycardias (using sponsored Apps and devices)
– Implantation of all types of pacemakers and defibrillators
– Implantation of heart failure specific devices thru Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) and pacing at the physiologic conducting system (LBB-P, LVS-P)
– Heart failure treatment with guidelines oriented medical and device therapies (impedance measurement of lung fluid)

– Venous and arterial duplex and ultrasound of head, neck (carotid), upper and lower extremities
