Dr. Eli Gang, M.D., Chief Operating Officer of Neuro-Kinesis and Clinical Professor of Medicine, Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, was ranked among America’s Top Doctors® according to a peer survey conducted by U.S. News & World Report magazine
In the recently released survey, Dr. Gang ranked in the top one percent of physicians in the specialty of cardiology and heart surgery. The listing is published annually and compiled from surveys and interviews conducted with hundreds of thousands of physicians and healthcare professionals to identify the top specialists across the country. This peer nomination process is designed to help patients find the best physicians and to increase physician awareness of peers most worthy of referral.
“I’m honored by this recognition and support for longstanding efforts to give patients the best care I am able to provide,” said Dr. Gang. “This work includes our efforts with CGCI to improve the safety and efficacy of procedures for patients with arrhythmia.”
Dr. Gang obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from Columbia College in New York City and his Master’s degree from Columbia University’s College of Physicians & Surgeons. He taught Clinical Electrophysiology at Tel Hashomer Hospital in Israel and was co-Director of the Clinical Electrophysiology Laboratory at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles from 1983–1988.

Dr. Gang was lead author on a recently published paper entitled “Dynamically Shaped Magnetic Fields: Initial Animal Validation of a New Remote Electrophysiology Catheter Guidance and Control System” published online in advance of its appearance in the print version of the medical journal Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology, published by the American Heart Association. The paper summarizes the results of the initial feasibility study of remote electroanatomic mapping, navigation, and ablation in animals, performed by the Catheter Guidance Control and Imaging (CGCI) system. The paper can be found online here.
“We are fortunate to have the talent and wisdom of Dr. Gang. This top US ranking is confirmation of his qualities as a great doctor, with strong academic and peer standing.
