Jeffrey Moak, M.D., is the Director of Electrophysiology and Pacing Program in the Children’s National Hospital Division of Cardiology, and he has held the position for more than 20 years. He is a professor at George Washington School of Medicine & Health Sciences. He treats children, adolescents and young adults with cardiac arrhythmias and autonomic nervous system dysfunction.

Dr. Moak’s main interests have centered on cardiac arrhythmias, especially those that occur after open heart surgery, as well as those that appear in healthy children. Currently Dr. Moak and the cardiology team are working on developing non-fluoroscopic techniques for catheter ablation of cardiac arrhythmias in children, non-pharmacologic methods for the control of arrhythmias that occur in the early post-operative period and new methods for the treatment of children and adolescents with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.

As one of the pioneers in the laser extraction technique, Dr. Moak holds research funding to assess the best transvenous pacing leads to use in children. Dr. Moak and his team are initiating a new medical safety initiative assessing the safest practice for the treatment of children with cardiac arrhythmias in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Dr. Moak is a member of the ACC/HRS/AHA committee writing new guidelines for the evaluation and treatment of Syncope and Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.
