Biography

Dr Kang-Teng Lim is a Cardiologist Electrophysiologist located at the Gold Coast, Queensland. He has a special interest in the management of arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and regularly performs catheter ablation therapy, implantation of cardiac electronic devices such as pacemakers, defibrillators and loop recorders.

He currently consults at the Gold Coast Private Hospital, John Flynn Private Hospital, and Pindara Private Hospital, and is in private practice at the Gold Coast Heart Centre.

Dr Lim completed his medical degree at Melbourne University and subsequent advanced cardiology training. Following this, he completed an Electrophysiology and Pacing Fellowship at the Royal Perth Hospital and further training in France under the guidance of the renowned Professor Michel Haïssaguerre.

He is actively involved in research and education as a member of the Gold Coast Heart Centre Cardiac Education Team and frequently involved in teaching medical students at Bond University and Griffith University.
