Frédéric Sacher was trained in electrophysiology in Bordeaux. During his fellowship in Boston at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (Harvard Medical School) with W.G. Stevenson, he was trained to ventricular tachycardia ablation. In 2007, he came back to Bordeaux with a praticien hospitalier position in Michel Haissaguerre’s department. Since 2017, he has a professor position.

Dr Sacher routinely performs all type of catheter ablation including epicardial VT, VF and Brugada syndrome ablation. Dr Sacher is in charge of the inherited arrhythmic disease center of reference and specialized in ventricular tachycardia ablation with patients referred from all over France. Dr Sacher contributions to the scientific literature as first author or co-author include over 250 original papers, and book chapters and over 500 abstracts.

Dr Sacher is a member of the Arrhythmia & Electrophysiology Review editorial board.
