Dr Ojas Mehta is a highly trained consultant cardiologist and electrophysiologist. After graduating from the University of Melbourne, he undertook his physician training at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and subsequent cardiology training at Monash Health. He subspecialised in Cardiac Pacing and Electrophysiology with a Fellowship at The Alfred and Monash Hospitals. Thereafter, he completed an overseas Fellowship at the Royal Jubilee Hospital, British Columbia, Canada where he trained with leaders in the field of cardiac pacing and arrhythmia.
Ojas brings with him novel approaches and procedural techniques to manage cardiac rhythm disorders. For implantable cardiac devices (ICD), he performs conduction system pacing, offers cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT), and implants leadless and subcutaneous devices in addition to conventional pacemakers or defibrillators. For cardiac ablation, he treats complex atrial and ventricular arrhythmias. He also performs venous alcohol ablation, a relatively new technique, to treat challenging cases of atrial fibrillation and premature ventricular complexes.
Ojas strives to provide evidence-based care that is tailored to your personal circumstance and wishes. He sees a Doctor-Patient relationship as a partnership to empower patients and steer them into their best version of health. When it comes to chronic disease, he understands the support that a community can play. Prior to his international training, Ojas was a board member for a Victoria-wide not-for-profit organisation to support patients with cardiac disease.
