Dr Narendra Kumar, leading cardiac electrophysiologist of India and Consultant Cardiologist & Electrophysiologist at Paras HMRI Hospital Patna & Paras Hospitals Gurgaon became the first south asian to be selected for an exclusive scholarship program at American Heart Rhythm Society at Boston and Milwaukee. The Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) is an international non-profit organization that promotes education and advocacy for cardiac arrhythmia professionals and patients. The Society was founded in 1979 and counted 5,100 members from over 70 countries as of January 2009.
Dr. Narendra Kumar is a European board Certified Electrophysiology Specialist (ECES) physician with more than 11 years of cardiology experience. He is the first physician of Indian origin to have passed European board examination. He obtained his doctorate on ‘Atrial Fibrillation Ablation’ from Maastricht University, amongst the world’s top ranked hospitals and has authored more than 50 publications (in JACC, Heart Rhythm, CHEST and reviewer for major journals as The Lancet, Circulation, JICE, Heart, etc). He is also a Fellow of American College of Cardiology and of European Society of cardiology and his 2 concepts are undergoing patent evaluation. Being trained at Harvard Medical School for advance medical techniques, his wider experience helps to provide better and well balanced cardiac EP solutions.
According to Dr Narendra Kumar, “Cardiac Electrophysiology is still a field that is in its nascent phase in India. Electrophysiology studies (EPS) are tests that help doctors understand the nature of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). These results can help you and your doctor decide whether you need medicine, a pacemaker, an implantable defibrillator (ICD), cardiac ablation or surgery, ensuring that the patient gets the best treatment plan and recommendation.”
Dr Narendra post his training at the Heart Rhythm Society (HRS) would be introducing Cryoballoon and 3D Heart Mapping Technology at Paras Hospitals, Gurgaon and Paras HMRI Hospital Patna.

As medical specialists it is our endeavour to ensure that the best of technology is introduced at such medical centres, at such a cost that the same is accessible by all. Even today some of the most complex electrophysiology procedures, cardiac surgeries and cardiac interventions are routinely performed at Paras Healthcare at affordable costs.”
