Dr. Amir Janmohamed is a cardiologist and cardiac electrophysiologist, and has been at Scarborough and Rouge Hospital since 2003. He is currently the manager of arrhythmia services, and the co-medical manager of the cardiac catheterization lab. Since joining RVHS, Dr. Janmohamed has successfully initiated the follow-up of cardiac defibrillator (ICD) patients in the arrhythmia clinic; developed and implemented a program for invasive cardiac electrophysiology studies and ablations; and most recently, began performing transseptal cardiac procedures, which allows the treatment of arrhythmias arising from the left side of the heart.
Dr. Janmohamed completed his bachelor of science in biochemistry from McMaster University, and earned his medical degree (M.B., B.S.) from the Aga Khan University in Karachi, Pakistan. He subsequently completed his internal medicine and cardiology fellowship at the University of Toronto, his cardiac electrophysiology training at St. Michael’s Hospital, and his interventional cardiology fellowship at Royal Alexandra Hospital in Alberta.
“I enjoy the variety and breadth of the practice,” he says. “I’m able to provide high quality comprehensive cardiac care to the patients in the community, leading to an improvement in their quality of life.”
