Mark Mascarenhas, MD
Mark Mascarenhas is a cardiac electrophysiologist with clinical expertise in the evaluation and treatment of heart rhythm disorders. He has vast experience in catheter ablation of arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia with the use of 3-dimensional mapping systems, percutaneous circulatory support devices, and epicardial access. In addition, he performs both implantations and extractions of cardiac pacemakers, implantable defibrillators (ICDs), cardiac resynchronization therapy ('biventricular') devices, and left atrial appendage occlusion devices. He is active in clinical research on the optimal approach to catheter based ablation of complex arrhythmias and new cardiac device technology.
Prior to joining Monmouth Cardiology Associates, Dr. Mascarenhas served as Assistant Professor in the Division of Cardiac Electrophysiology at New York University Medical Center, where he headed the Lead Management Program and was Quality Officer of the Division of Cardiac Electrophysiology.
Dr. Mascarenhas received his undergraduate degree from Rutgers College before getting his medical degree from Medical College of Pennsylvania-Hahnemann School of Medicine, in Philadelphia. He completed his internal medicine residency, chief residency, and fellowship in cardiovascular disease at Drexel University College of Medicine, followed by specialty training in cardiac electrophysiology at New York University School of Medicine. He is board certified in cardiac electrophysiology as well as cardiovascular disease.
In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and young son.
