His scientific and clinical work focuses on cardiovascular electrophysiology, particularly on atrial fibrillation. He is best known for his remarkable contributions in the area of atrial fibrillation ablation. He was the first to detect the importance of pulmonary vein triggers and drivers in the genesis of atrial fibrillation. In addition, he was first to propose the technique of pulmonary vein isolation, which underlies current methods used throughout the world for atrial fibrillation cure. He and his colleagues have extended these observations to include ablative lesions between the veins and to the mitral annulus - left atrial isthmus blocks.
