Dr. Kenigsberg has published numerous scholarly articles in peer-reviewed medical journals on many topics germane to electrophysiology. He has been the primary investigator/co-investigator in a myriad of clinical trials involving device and lead development and device programming. In addition, Dr. Kenigsberg has been involved in the development of intellectual property utilizing cardiac devices for early detection of patients at risk for a heart attack.
Dr. Kenigsberg is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology and the Heart Rhythm Society. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Florida Chapter of the American College of Cardiology and the Broward County Medical Association. He is also on the Board of Directors of the Holocaust Documentation and Education Center.
Dr. Kenigsberg’s clinical interests involve ablation of supraventricular and ventricular Cardiac arrhythmias and the implantation of monitors, pacemakers and defibrillators. Dr. Kenigsberg specializes in the ablation of more complex arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia. He is skilled at implanting cardiac resynchronization devices that require coronary sinus lead placement. He is on staff at eight hospitals in Broward County and one in Palm Beach County.
