About Dr Kerwin

Dr Walter Kerwin is a cardiologist and electrophysiologist who practices at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. He is also Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. His area of specialty is the treatment of arrhythmias, particularly atrial fibrillation, with the use of mapping and ablation technologies.

Dr Kerwin is active as well as a speaker on best practices and breakthrough techniques in cardiology and electrophysiology. He has published extensively on treating heart disorders and arrhythmias, including the use of cryoablation in the treatment of atrial fibrillation.

Supporting continuous learning and innovation

Dr Kerwin is committed to finding new and more effective ways of treating heart disease, as reflected by his research interests, which include: biventricular pacing for the management of advanced heart failure; cryoablation of atrial fibrillation and other arrhythmias; non-fluoroscopic arrhythmia mapping and ablation systems; and non-surgical epicardial mapping and ablation of arrhythmias.

Awards and membership

In 1992, while at Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr Kerwin was awarded a Bugher Fellowship by the American Heart Association.

He is a Fellow of the American College of Cardiology, a Member of the Heart Rhythm Society, and Clinical Cardiology Council Member of the American Heart Association.
