L. Lee Eckhardt, MD Print Friendly Page

Faculty, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health

Lee Eckhardt, MD, MS, is a clinical and research electrophysiologist and treats a wide variety of arrhythmia conditions particularly conditions that cause ventricular arrhythmia or sudden death. She is an expert in inherited arrhythmia conditions and directs both clinical and basic science arrhythmia research projects related to these interests with an overarching goal of prevention of sudden cardiac death (SCD).  She also co-directs the Inherited Arrhythmia Clinic and the Cardiac Arrest Prevention ProgramFor more information about her research program, click here.
