Fellowship recognizes members for their advanced training, certification, and commitment to the research and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. Founded in 1979 as the North American Society of Pacing and Electrophysiology, HRS is a leading resource on cardiac pacing and electrophysiology, representing medical, allied health and science professionals from more than 70 countries who specialize in cardiac rhythm disorders.
As director of electrophysiology and arrhythmia services, Dr. Kanner oversees and directs electrophysiology operations in South Nassau’s state-of-the-
Dr. Kanner and South Nassau’s Center for Cardiovascular Health have been in the forefront in treating heart rhythm disorders with the latest advancements in implantable cardio-defibrillator devices and electrophysiology services.
Dr. Kanner was the first electrophysiologist on Long Island to implant several groundbreaking cardiac devices: the Viva® cardiac resynchronization therapy device with defibrillation (CRT-D) (which continuously adjusts to individual patient needs and preserves each patient’s normal heart rhythms); Incepta® ICD (recognized as the world’s smallest and thinnest ICD); Evia® pacemaker (which incorporates a wireless monitoring system that immediately notifies the patient’s physician if the patient or the pacemaker is experiencing complications)
In addition to ICDs, Dr. Kanner and electrophysiologists at the Center for Cardiovascular Health use an array of other advanced technologies and treatments to provide timely, accurate diagnoses and therapies for the range of cardiac arrhythmias. This includes diagnostic studies, defibrillator maintenance, implanting and testing of pacemakers, and radiofrequency catheter ablation.
