Patient Care Setting



Dr. Rosero provides care for patients with cardiac arrhythmias including atrial fibrillation, and ventricular tachycardia. He performs ablation of complex arrhythmias including ventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation. Dr. Rosero is an expert in complete management of pacemakers, defibrillators, and resynchronization devices. He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Disease and Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology.

Professional Background

Dr. Spencer Z. Rosero is Professor of Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry. He currently serves as Director of the Clinical Research Center -the Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) and as Clinical Director of the Center for Medical Technology and Innovation at the University of Rochester. He obtained his medical degree at the State University of New York SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, and holds an M.S. degree in Pharmacology from the University of Rochester. Dr. Rosero completed his internal medicine, cardiology and electrophysiology fellowship training at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Dr. Rosero's research interests focuses on better understanding hereditary arrhythmias such as Long QT syndrome and on futuristic technologies that further the personalization of medicine . Dr. Rosero's interests includes the translation of medical device-machine acquired data into clinically relevant biomarkers, with a focus on precision medicine and quality of life.. He has several issued and pending patents in his field and is currently developing an implantable biosensor that uses living cells inside the the chip to provide real-time in-vivo monitoring of biological processes.
