Dr Adam C. Lee
EP/Device Consultant Cardiologist
MBBS, MMed (Clin Epi), FRACP


Dr. Adam C. Lee is a cardiologist who cares for patients with a variety of heart conditions. He specializes in electrophysiology (studying the heart’s electrical activity), used to diagnose and treat arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats). He completed cardiology training at Liverpool Hospital in Sydney from 2012-2014, then underwent subspecialty cardiac electrophysiology training at The Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane from 2015-2017, followed by additional research and advanced clinical electrophysiology fellowships at The University of California San Francisco (UCSF) in San Francisco USA from 2017 – 2020. From 2020, he served as a cardiologist and electrophysiologist on faculty at UCSF until his return to Australia in mid 2023.  

He has particular expertise in catheter ablation for complex arrhythmias (using a mapping system to identify and destroy heart tissues that are producing abnormal electrical signals) including epicardial ablation (“outside” the heart) and in patients with complex congenital heart disease. He also performs complex cardiac device procedures, including lead extraction (removing a wire from a pacemaker or implanted defibrillator because of a problem such as infection), conduction system pacing (a new technique where a lead is implanted directly into the heart’s own electrical wiring system) and venoplasty (inserting and inflating a tiny balloon to improve blood flow in a vein), particularly to allow placement of additional wires for pacemaker upgrades. He also focuses on minimal-radiation procedures, routinely performing ablations without the use of any X-ray. He is experienced with advanced cardiac technologies, including subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillators (heart monitors that deliver an electric shock if a life-threatening arrhythmia is detected) and leadless pacemakers (small devices implanted directly into a heart chamber to treat certain conditions).
