Dr. Troy E. Rhodes, a cardiac electrophysiologist from the Ohio State University Medical Center, has joined the Medical Center faculty as an assistant professor of medicine.
Before medical school, Rhodes received his PhD in biomedical sciences-neurosciences from Old Dominion University and Eastern Virginia Medical School in 1996. He received his MD from EVMS in 2002. He completed internal medicine residency (2002-04) and cardiology fellowship (2004-08) at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, followed by cardiac electrophysiology fellowship (2008-10) at Ohio State University Medical Center. Following fellowship, he joined the OSUMC faculty as a clinical assistant professor of medicine.
Rhodes is board-certified in internal medicine, cardiology and electrophysiology, a certified cardiac device specialist, and a fellow of the Heart Rhythm Society. He has authored or coauthored 13 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 24 abstracts and two book chapters.
Rhodes specializes in treating patients with arrhythmias (AF, SVT, PVCs, VT), syncope and cardiac devices (pacemakers, ICDs, loop monitors). He performs electrophysiologic testing and ablation procedures as well as device implants and lead extractions. His research interests include evaluating new cardiac devices and ablation therapies. He completed the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s (IHI’s) Patient Safety Executive Development Program in 2013 and was involved in patient safety and quality improvement while at Ohio State.
