Dr. Lee joined Carient Heart & Vascular after a successful career in the military. Having attained the rank of Colonel in the U.S. Army, he retired after 28 years in uniform including two tours in Afghanistan as a Cavalry Squadron Surgeon. He received his undergraduate education from the U.S. Military Academy, West Point, and his medical degree from Georgetown University. He trained in cardiology at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington D.C., and pursued his cardiac electrophysiology training at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. His professional interests in cardiac electrophysiology include complex catheter ablation procedures for arrhythmias as well as comprehensive cardiac device management and implantation and extraction of intra-cardiac and subcutaneous devices. In addition, he focuses on zero-fluoroscopy catheter ablation procedures to reduce ionizing radiation exposure for patients and medical staff, and the use of intra-cardiac ultrasound in a variety of applications. He is greatly indebted to the expert mentors who provided him with his skill sets over the years, and enjoys teaching and sharing professional techniques with medical teams that he works alongside in the patient care mission. When not managing complex arrhythmias, he is busy managing the complex issues involved in raising 5 children in Northern Virginia, and spending active time outdoors with his wife and family. I believe in the sanctity of life, and that every life has value and is thus entitled to dignity and respect. In modern medicine where there is a lot we can do, I help guide patients to make the medically appropriate decision that is also most consistent with their healthcare priorities and personal beliefs.
