Rajat Jhanjee, MD, MSEE, Joins Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists
Posted Date: 1/10/2012
Rajat Jhanjee, MD, a fellowship-trained clinical electrophysiologist and board-certified cardiologist, is joining Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists, adding clinical electrophysiology to Tanner’s line of advanced cardiac services.
Dr. Jhanjee earned a master’s in electrical engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) and worked as an electrical engineer for Dallas Semiconductor and Guidant Co. before enrolling in medical school at the University of Minnesota. There, he earned his medical degree, completed his internship and residency in internal medicine, as well as fellowships in cardiovascular research, clinical cardiology and clinical electrophysiology.
“As an electrical engineer, I worked with companies that developed and manufactured the equipment that cardiologists used to address electrical anomalies in the heart,” said Dr. Jhanjee. “I became interested in the other side of what I was doing – in how the devices and technologies I was working on were being used to improve people’s lives in practice. That’s why I enrolled in medical school and studied cardiac electrophysiology, and now I’m ready to bring what I’ve learned from both the aspects of development and practice to our patients.”
At Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists, Dr. Jhanjee will provide a wide range of cardiac care, including ablation, pacemaker placement and other electrophysiological services.
Dr. Jhanjee said he decided to bring his practice to Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists because he was impressed with the practice’s patient care team, as well as Tanner’s commitment to cardiac care.
“A lot of places offer pretty impressive technology when it comes to cardiac services,” he said. “But people make the difference. It’s clear that the doctors and staff at Tanner Heart & Vascular Specialists genuinely care about their patients. It’s the kind of place doctors and patients both want to be.”
