Clinicians who diagnose Sudden Cardiac Death Syndromes at Johns Hopkins Hospital

As you may know, many causes of sudden cardiac death are inherited, or passed from one generation to the next. If you are a close relative of someone who has passed away from sudden cardiac death, you may want to see a cardiologist to determine if you are at risk of sudden cardiac death and what steps can be taken to prevent this.

We have many excellent cardiologists in the Johns Hopkins Heart & Vascular Institute. Drs. Tomaselli and Nazarian are electrophysiologists who are specially trained to identify and treat irregular heart rhythms. Dr. Judge is an expert in cardiovascular genetics who primarily treats individuals with genetic forms of cardiomyopathy. Drs. Calkins and Tandri have an arrhthmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy / dysplasia clinic and are recognized world leaders in this area. Dr. Calkin has set up an additional service bringing together even more physicians who diagnose and treat arrythmias into a single center found here.

We encourage you to make an appointment with one of these clinicians if you feel your health is at risk.
