Professional Bio

Spencer Rosero is an Associate Professor of Medicine and Director of the Hereditary Arrhythmias Clinic.

As a specialist in heart rhythm disorders, Dr. Rosero treats patients using a wide range of therapeutic options including radiofrequency ablation of abnormal rhythms including life threatening rhythms such as ventricular tachycardia, implantation of electronic medical devices such as pacemakers, defibrilllators (ICD's), and cardiac resynchronization therapy devices.

Dr. Rosero is actively involved in pursuing futuristic medical device technologies that support personalization of medical care. He holds several patents in the field of medical devices reflecting his interests in advanced biosensors. His research interests include the design and development of implantable cell based biosensors, clinical evaluation of experimental implantable medical device technologies, and the design and execution of gene-specific pharmacotherapy trials in hereditary arrhythmias such as Long QT syndrome. As the site principal investigator for the early evaluation of a novel implantable left atrial pressure monitoring system at the University of Rochester, Dr. Rosero's team was the first in the nation to implant the St. Jude Heart Pod device.
