Dr. Patrick Hranitzky

I truly enjoy the specialty of cardiac electrophysiology and meeting and working with patients to improve their quality of life with the newest techniques and therapies available.

Dr Hranitzky did his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University. He received his medical degree and completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Dr Hranitzky then went on to complete a fellowship in both cardiology and electrophysiology at Duke University Medical Center in North Carolina. Upon completion of his fellowship programs, Dr Hranitzky served as an assistant professor of medicine at Duke University Medical Center from 2004 to 2013. In addition while at Duke, he served as the director of the Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology Fellowship Program from 2007 to 2011 as well as being the director of the Ventricular Arrhythmia Ablation Program from 2009 until 2013. Dr Hranitzky is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the Heart Rhythm Society. During his tenure at Duke University he received numerous awards for teaching excellence in the College of Medicine. He has been extremely active in research and has been a principal investigator in many research studies past and ongoing, and has written and co-authored numerous articles and publications in the area of electrophysiology.

Dr. Hranitzky’s areas of special interest in electrophysiology are catheter ablation of the ischemic ventricular tachycardia substrate, techniques for ablation of epicardial arrhythmogenic foci, and catheter ablation of atrial fibrillation. He also has interests in the evaluation and management of cardiac dyssynchrony in heart failure patients, extraction of ICD/pacemaker hardware, and genomics /proteomics of electrophysiologic phenotypes.

Dr. Hranitzky’s office locations include Dallas and Durham North Carolina
