Shane Bailey, M.D.
Electrophysiology is an extremely gratifying field of medicine. Many heart rhythm disorders that previously required life-long treatment or resulted in recurrent symptoms can now be cured with an invasive strategy. Every year, we are developing new tools and techniques that broaden our understanding of heart rhythm disorders and result in meaningful treatments to patients that restore their health.
As a student, Dr. Shane Bailey was exposed to electrophysiology at a point when doctors in the field were beginning to understand that certain heart rhythm problems that had previously been lifelong illnesses could be cured. The career choice was easy.
Dr. Bailey says he is constantly fascinated by the complexity of the human heart, and how far medical science has come in just the past few years in alleviating electrical disorders that can exist within our hearts.
Dr. Bailey earned his medical degree from Loma Linda University Medical School in Loma Linda, California. He completed his internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. After working as an intensivist and emergency room physician in San Francisco, Dr. Bailey completed a fellowship in General Cardiology followed by a fellowship in Cardiac Electrophysiology, both at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.
Among the things he finds most rewarding about practicing medicine, Dr. Bailey lists working with a remarkable group of physicians who are on the cutting edge of their specialty, but more so, his daily interaction with patients and their families, knowing he is helping to improve their lives.
