Dr Ajita Kanthan is a pioneer in the use of radiation-free procedural techniques, having performed the first radiation-free transvenous 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:
He also performs all types of device implants including:
Leadless & traditional pacemakers
Subcutaneous & traditional defibrillators
Bi-Ventricular re-synchronisation devices.
