Luis R.scottVice Chair, Associate Professor, Consultant | Phoenix, Arizona
Luis R. Scott, M.D., studies the effects of medical procedures and devices commonly used by the general population on the function of implantable cardiac devices (pacemakers and implantable defibrillators).
The most recent examples include radiation therapy and hybrid automobiles. In the latter, Dr. Scott developed a stationary model to mimic driving conditions of a moving automobile to study patients with implantable devices.
Dr. Scott is also interested in clinical outcomes after interventional treatment of atrial fibrillation.
