Dr Andrei Catanchin is a Cardiologist Electrophysiologist located in Victoria. He primarily consults at the Epworth Hospital in Richmond, he visits the Manningham Medical Centre weekly and consults at the Knox Private Hospital fortnightly.

Andrei completed his Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery at the University of Melbourne. Followed by specialty cardiology training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and a Fellowship in Electrophysiology at St George’s University & Hospital in London, United Kingdom.

Dr Catanchin is experienced in all areas of Cardiology Electrophysiology including atrial fibrillation, supraventricular tachycardia, ectopic beats and the implantation of pacemakers, defibrillation and loop recorders. He continues to be an active contributor to the establishment of an Arrhythmia / Catheter Ablation service at Knox Private Hospital.

He regularly contributes to educational activities such as teaching medical students at the University of Melbourne, regularly presenting at various local and national meetings, and is currently involved in various clinical trials for NOACs (novel anticoagulants) and cardiac devices.
