Andrew Krumerman, MD

Andrew Krumerman, MD,

Attending Physician & Assistant Professor of Medicine at
Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Dr. Andrew Krumerman was born and raised in the New York City.  He graduated from the University of Michigan, and went on to receive his MD from The Sackler School of Medicine in Tel Aviv.  Postgraduate training in Internal Medicine and Cardiology was at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Hospital.  Subspecialty training in Cardiac Electrophysiology was at Columbia/New York Presbyterian Hospital.  Following fellowship training, Dr. Krumerman joined the renowned Montefiore Arrhythmia Service and was appointed Assistant Professor of Medicine at The Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  Dr. Krumerman’s special interests include complex left atrial catheter ablation for cure of atrial fibrillation.  He is site’s principal investigator for the STOP-AF study; A multicenter, randomized, controlled trial of cryoballoon ablation in the treatment of paroxysmal atrial fibrillation.

 

John D. Fisher, MD

 

John D. Fisher, MD,

Director of Montefiore-Einstein Heart Center's Arrhythmia program

Dr. Fisher graduated from Yale University, and went on to receive his MD from Wayne State University in Detroit. Postgraduate training was done at Boston City Hospital, New York-Cornell Medical Center, Montefiore Medical Center-Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and the Royal Postgraduate Medical School (now Imperial University)-Hammersmith Hospital, London UK.

The renowned Montefiore Pacemaker Service became the Pacer-Arrhythmia Service with  the addition of Dr. Fisher to the faculty. After a period of collegial evolution, the Pacer and Arrhythmia (EP) components have now re-united. He has served in a number of institutional roles, including Cardiology Division Chief.

Dr. Fisher has been interested and contributed to the literature in a broad range, including antitachycardia pacing, serial electropharmacologic testing, early ablation of WPW, early transvenous defibrillation. He has been a leader in several important multicenter trials, and remains active clinically and academically.

Jay N. Gross, MD

Jay N. Gross, MD,

Director of the Montefiore-Einstein Intercampus Pacemaker Service.

Dr Gross is a graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He received all of his postgraduate training at Montefiore. He is Professor of Clinical Medicine at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He has served as Director of the Pacemaker service since 1992.

  Dr. Gross has twenty years of experience in the field of Cardiovascular Electrophysiology, including extensive experience in the areas of diagnostic and ablative electrophysiology. He has a national reputation for the management of complex implantable device challenges.  As a result of this experience, Montefiore has become a major tertiary referral center for care of patients with these complex problems.   His research interests include the impact of implantable devices on hemodynamic and atrial rhythm stability in patients with cardiovascular disease. He has served as principal investigator on numerous multicenter trials, and is long-serving member of the IBHRExAM writing committee. 

 

Kevin J. Ferrick, MD

Kevin J. Ferrick, MD,

Kevin.  J. Ferrick, M.D. was born in NYC and graduated with honors from the Cooper Union where he received a Baccalaureate degree in Chemical Engineering.  He received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1977, and he subsequently completed training in internal medicine at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine.  He received subspecialty training in both cardiovascular disease and clinical electrophysiology at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center.  Currently, Dr. Ferrick is Professor of Clinical Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and a full time member of the Arrhythmia Service at Montefiore Medical Center.  He is also Director of the cardiovascular training program Albert Einstein College of Medicine (Montefiore) - Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center affiliate as well as Director of the ECG department at Montefiore Medical Center.  Along with his colleagues in the Montefiore Arrhythmia Group, Dr. Ferrick has participated in numerous multi center clinical trials involving patients with cardiac arrhythmias.  His areas of research interest include device-based therapy for patients with known or suspected cardiac arrhythmias, the use of ablative therapy for the management of recalcitrant supraventricular and ventricular arrhythmias and noninvasive risk stratification for the identification of patients at risks for sudden cardiac arrest.
