- Theodore Takata, M.D., was born in Takoma Park, Md. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature with honors, and Bachelor of Science in zoology, from the University of Maryland at College Park. He was a member of Sigma Tau Delta, Phi Sigma Society, and the General Honors curriculum program.
He received his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore and completed his training in internal medicine at Case Western Reserve’s University Hospitals of Cleveland. He completed his training in cardiovascular disease at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, and remained there for subspecialty training in cardiac electrophysiology.
Takata joined Consultants in Cardiology in 2002. His clinical specialization encompasses the diagnosis and treatment of complex cardiac arrhythmias. His expertise includes knowledge and application of radiofrequency and point cryo catheter ablation, use of three-dimensional computer mapping systems, and atrial fibrillation ablation. In 2011, Takata performed one of the first cryoballoon ablations for atrial fibrillation in North Texas. He also specializes in the implantation and management of pacemaker and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs), including cardiac resynchronization pacing devices (biventricular pacing), as well as with ICD and pacemaker lead extraction and device removal.
In addition to time spent in the care of patients, Takata devotes time to investigational clinical research and student mentorship. Clinical research has included investigation of novel oral anticoagulation agents, new antiarrhythmic medications for both life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation, investigational cardiac pacing products such as the first MRI compatible pacemaker, and emergency antidotes for the novel oral anticoagulation agents. He has also mentored medical students for the University of North Texas Health Science Center in clinical research and clinical practice.
Takata is an avid road cyclist, gadget and computer enthusiast. He enjoys traveling, cooking and photography.
