Academic Appointments

Dr Ajita Kanthan is a pioneer in the use of radiation-free procedural techniques, having performed the first radiation-free trans-venous pacemaker implant in Australia. He is currently the only cardiologist in the country performing this pacemaker technique on a regular basis.

The significance of radiation-free techniques is highlighted by the fact that traditional trans-venous device implant methods rely on the use of X-rays, with radiation doses that can reach up to the equivalent of about 500 chest x-rays.

Dr Kanthan also performed the first radiation-free cardiac ablations of both supra-ventricular and ventricular rhythm disorders in Sydney.

He is a national and international trainer on device implantation and radiation-free procedural techniques.

Dr Kanthan treats all forms of rhythm disorders including:

- Atrial fibrillation

- Supraventricular tachycardia

- Ventricular tachycardia

- Blackouts

- Palpitations

He also performs all types of device implants including:

- Loop recorders

- Leadless & traditional pacemakers

- Subcutaneous & traditional defibrillators

- Bi-Ventricular re-synchronisation devices.
