About Gordon Ho, MD

Gordon Ho, MD, is a board-certified cardiologist who subspecializes in cardiac electrophysiology. He takes care of patients with fast, slow and irregular heart rhythms. Specifically, he has expertise in performing minimally-invasive procedures to treat atrial and ventricular arrhythmias.

His primary goal is to provide safe, individualized, and evidence-based care of patients with all heart rhythm disorders. He is skilled at catheter ablation of heart rhythm disorders, including patient-specific mapping and ablation of atrial fibrillation (Afib), atrial flutter, atrial tachycardias, ventricular tachycardia (VT), premature ventricular contractions (PVC), supraventricular tachycardias (SVT). He also performs device-based therapy (pacemakers, including leadless pacemakers) for slow heart rhythms (bradycardia), implantable defibrillators (ICD) for dangerous arrhythmias, cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) for heart failure and implantable loop recorders (ILR) to detect arrhythmias.

Using his biomedical engineering background, Dr. Ho performs innovative research to develop novel cutting-edge technologies to improve treatment of heart rhythm disorders. His research projects include the development of computer-based mapping techniques to improve patient-specific therapy of all arrhythmias and studying mechanisms of refractory atrial fibrillation. He maintains active collaborations with co-investigators at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. Dr. Ho has been published in medical journals including Journal of the American College of Cardiology: Clinical Electrophysiology.

Dr. Ho completed a residency in internal medicine at Stanford University and fellowship training in general cardiology and advanced subspecialty training in cardiac electrophysiology at UC San Diego School of Medicine, where he also earned his medical degree. Dr. Ho is board certified in internal medicine, cardiovascular medicine and clinical cardiac electrophysiology.

He is a member of the Heart Rhythm Society, American College of Cardiology, and American Heart Association.
